Today Legislators Discuss Road Funding Plans
State lawmakers in Lansing are considering new legislation that would allocate at least $500 million to help get the state's roads repaired. This would be in addition to money already earmarked for projects statewide.
One proposal being reviewed would tie warranties in with any work that is done. Supporters say that would help minimize the cost of future repairs.
Officials are warning in the aftermath of the worst winter in years, many of the state's roads, already in rough shape will end up even worse off. That's why they are urging fast action on a funding plan.
