Michigan Senate committee approves $175 million for road repairs

By  | 

LANSING, Mich. (AP) (2/28/2018) - A bill that would infuse $175 million more into Michigan roads and bridge this year has taken another step forward in the Legislature.

A Senate committee voted 16-0 Wednesday to send the supplemental budget legislation to the full Senate, which is expected to vote Thursday.

Gov. Rick Snyder recently proposed the additional $175 million for road and bridge repairs in the 2018-19 budget. But lawmakers want to spend it in the current fiscal year.
