Below you’ll find a handy graphic pointing out how much money from existing resources has been invested in Michigan roads under the previous administration, as well as how much has been invested under current Republican leadership.

There’s simple math at work here: under House Republican leadership, $584.8 million from existing state resources have been invested in Michigan roads.  That amount is $584.8 million more than what the previous administration put toward fixing roads.  That’s right folks, $0 from existing resources was committed to fixing roads before Republican leadership took over in 2011.

House Republicans understand that fixing our roads and bridges are important to creating a brighter future for Michigan residents, and will continue to dedicate existing resources to fixing our roads and bridges while not adding an extra burden to our hardworking residents.
