Road funding measure appears to be stalled until Lame Duck


LANSING (WKZO) -- Road funding may be the first priority for Michigan’s voters, but it appears that House and Senate leaders are content to sit on the issue until after the election.

Speaker Jase Bolger’s press secretary says they have gone to bat with a half billion dollar proposal approved in the spring.

Ari Adler says its time for the state Senate to “climb out of their huddle in the dugout and do the same."

Senate leader Randy Richardville responded by saying that they don’t have huddles in baseball, and he wants a measure that will generate the 1.5-billion that MDOT says it needs.

He says once this “election year stuff” is out of the way, they will probably come together on something.
