State Rep. Mike Mueller, of Linden, issued the following statement after the governor vetoed several line items from the Legislature-approved budget:
“While I’m incredibly grateful that the governor recognizes the importance of the Genesee County public safety initiative and its impact on our community, I am disappointed that she failed to approve much-needed statewide road funding.
“Our communities have not been immune to the crumbling roads and infrastructure across Michigan, and we’re in desperate need of greater help from the state. It’s apparent that the governor is not interested in helping local communities unless it’s by way of her proposed 45-cent per gallon gas tax increase, which the Legislature refused to include in the budget we sent to her for approval last week.
“Thankfully, the 2015 Republican road funding plan is still being rolled out. It is because of that plan that we see construction crews repairing our local roads today. I remain committed to improving and funding infrastructure improvement in our community and across our state.”
“Local health department experts across our state know what’s best for the kids in their communities,” Mueller said. “This plan ensures schools can choose the best mode of instruction for their unique area. As a parent, my priority is keeping kids safe without jeopardizing their education. Utilizing innovative methods of instruction, we can all work together to achieve that goal.”
