Governor Whitmer Walks Away from Negotiations
According to WILX-News 10, Governor Gretchen Whitmer simply walked away from negotiations with Republican leaders, less than three weeks before the state is forced to shut down.
The Governor says Republicans aren't serious about fixing the roads or passing a budget.
She says they've repeatedly failed to come up with their own solution after rejecting her proposal to raise the gas tax 45 cents per gallon. Now she's talking again about putting the issue on the ballot so voters can decide.
Governor Whitmer also said there is no real substantive plan out of the Republicans to fix the road problem. She says that she's done her job and it's time for them to do theirs.
Whitmer recently told the public that she's gonna be honest about the size of the problem and she is going to work to have real solutions.
