State Rep. Greg MacMaster, R-Kewadin, with his wife Kim, welcomed Enzo and Danielle Lieghio of Mackinaw City to the House chamber on Wednesday evening for Gov. Rick Snyder’s State of the State address. MacMaster said the governor’s third speech was a good starting point to begin discussing transportation infrastructure in Michigan.
“We all agree funding for Michigan roads and bridges need to be addressed, the question is how to we approach it,” MacMaster said. “The big concern is how we do it – do we double registration fees and what about the electric cars and the gas tax. So it’s something we need to get more information about, to see how much money is being raised for the roads we have now, as well as how it’s spent on the roads and where the rest is going.”
