LANSING (WKZO) -- The Michigan House has approved spending 215-million dollars on road repairs and weather-related infrastructure improvements, while the Senate approved 100-million.  Representative Joe Haveman of Holland chairs the Appropriations Committee and said on the House floor Tuesday that it’s a relief to be debating how much money to spend on roads instead of looking for places to cut.

The House bill would get the money directly into the hands of county road commissions and city and township road agencies, while the Senate bill sends the money through the Michigan Department of Transportation.  Those details will be worked out in a conference committee.
