Sen. Ananich response to budget negotiations moving forward without a roads solution

LANSING, Mich. – Today, Senate Minority Leader Jim Ananich (D-Flint) issued the following statement after Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and Republican legislative leaders agreed to proceed with budget negotiations without a solution to fixing Michigan’s crumbling infrastructure:

“I think we all agree that fixing the roads comes with a $2.5 billion price tag that’s only going to get bigger. Yes, it’s critical that we get a budget done and signed on time. And yes, we also need to address the condition of our infrastructure with the urgency it requires. It’s incredibly important that we all come back to the negotiating table immediately after the budget’s done, because the roads problem isn’t going away; it’s only going to get worse.”
