Statement on new report that shows Michigan roads rapidly deteriorating

LANSING – The Michigan AFL-CIO issued the following statement commenting on a new report that found that Michigan’s roads and bridges will continue to rapidly deteriorate in coming years:

“If anyone deserves the blame for Michigan’s unsafe roads and bridges, it’s Governor Snyder and Lansing Republicans,” said Ron Bieber, president of the Michigan AFL-CIO. “The roads package they passed two years ago made it more expensive to own a car by raising taxes and fees on working families, but didn’t require corporations to pay a single penny more to fix our crumbling infrastructure. That needs to change. If this report tells us anything, it’s that Michigan needs real solutions to fix our roads, not more gimmicks, and we can’t force regular families to shoulder the burden alone.”
