Sen. Alexander on governor’s budget proposal to fix roads

LANSING, Mich. — Sen. Betty Jean Alexander (D-Detroit, Dearborn Heights, Garden City, Inkster, and Redford) has issued the following statement on Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s Fiscal Year 2019-20 budget proposal, which increases road funding and saves motorists on unnecessary car repairs.

“The cost of an unexpected auto repair because of Michigan’s terrible roads is something Michiganders and the working families of Metro Detroit have suffered through for too long. I look at the governor’s proposal as a starting point to a serious discussion on road funding. I want to look at all options, including potential savings within the department, before I commit to anything.”
