State Senate Majority Leader Says Four Tops Making Progress on Roads Deal

The four tops continue to meet and make progress on a plan to pay for Michigan’s roads, according to the state Senate Majority Leader.

Senator Arlan Meekhof says he and the other three legislative leaders have yet to come up with a final solution to fund the states road and bridge maintenance, but they are coming along.

The House and Senate have differing plans with the House wanting to use about $600 million in existing revenue. The Senate plan would use about $700 million.

Meekof won’t say whether that number will change but adds they wouldn’t do anything to put the state’s budget at risk.

Governor Rick Snyder has said he would not want to go above the amount offered by the House.

Lawmakers had been considering some tax increases as part of the plan. Meekof says user fees are still in the mix.
