Supplemental Budget Bill with Additional Road Funding Sent to Conference Committee

Posted on March 6, 2014 by Dene Westbrook

SB 608 which included additional $100 million to be spent on cost incurred during this years winter has been sent to Conference Committee. Legislators appointed to the committee form the Senate include Appropriations Chair Roger Kahn (R-Saginaw), Vice Chair John Moolenaar (R-Midland), and Minority Vice Chair Glenn Anderson (D-Westland). The House has appointed Appropriation Chair Joe Haveman (R-Holland), Vice Chair Al Pscholka (R-Stevensville) and Minority Vice Chair Rashida Tlaib (D-Detroit).

There are some significant points of difference that need to be worked out but there is a general consensus that additional funds for roads will be included. Due to these differences and the time that if could take to work them out, the League continues to encourage you to contact your legislators and asked that the differences in this bill be quickly worked out and that additional funding for roads be sent to our communities as soon as possible.

John LaMacchia is a Legislative Associate for the League handling transportation and infrastructure issues. He can be reached at jlamacchia@mml.org or 517-908-0303.
