Rogers Reacts to Gov. Snyder's State of the State Address
Rogers says the state's system for handling road infrastructure is out-of-date.
Gov. Rick Snyder delivered his third State of the State address to a joint session of the Michigan Legislature Wednesday night.
In his speech, Snyder called for increased gas taxes and vehicle registration fees to repair Michigan's crumbling road infrastructure.
State Rep. Bill Rogers (R-Brighton) made the following statement after the governor's address:
"The governor's speech tonight highlighted the great progress we've made to get our state moving in the right direction, but reminded us that the work is far from over. There is still much more work to do to continue to revitalize our economy and get Michigan thriving for future generations.
"I agree with the governor that there needs to be more of discussion on our roads. The previous system has been in place since 1951. Times have drastically changed since then and we cannot continue to use the same formula. I look forward to working with Gov. Snyder and my colleagues to change this system and keep Michigan moving forward."
