LANSING (WKZO) -- Lawmakers in Lansing are proposing sending counties, cities and villages approximately 100-million dollars to help pay for snow removal costs.  An amendment to a supplemental funding bill was introduced in Lansing Tuesday that would go through normal road funding formula's.

Road commission officials statewide are having difficulty covering the costs to clear area roads and are dipping into money set aside for spring and summer projects.  Some lawmakers say the extra funding should come from the projected three-year, 971-million dollar budget surplus.
