Progress Michigan Statement on Road Proposal
MICHIGAN — Progress Michigan released the following statement regarding the announcement by Gov. Rick Snyder and legislative leaders of a road-funding proposal.
“This package of bills is Republicans attempting to repair the damage they have caused over the past four years with their irresponsible cuts to education and programs that help struggling families,” said Lonnie Scott, executive director of Progress Michigan. “While we are encouraged by the prospect that the EITC will be restored and that education funding will see a much needed increase and that our roads will be repaired, we are disappointed that the funding mechanism voters will be asked to approve will disproportionately impact low and middle income families. This continues the Snyder economic policies that benefit the wealthy and big business at the expense of hardworking Michiganders.”
