GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Lansing is still working on a plan to devote more than $1.2 billion annually to fixing Michigan’s roads, and it doesn’t seem likely that there could be much movement before autumn.
On this week’s episode of “To The Point,” Lt. Gov. Brian Calley weighed in on the difficulty of reaching a deal.
He said it’s not just about the party line.
“There is a very wide diversity of opinion across both of the political parties. You have the Republican Party and then you have the Democrats and they operate under those labels, but there are a lot diverse views within those two groups,” Calley told “To The Point” this week. “Coming to a solution on it is not a matter of ‘Here’s what every single Republican thinks and here is what every single Democrat thinks,’ and so the solution is still one where it takes the assembly of 56 in the House, 20 in the Senate and the governor to all agree on one solution.”
Also on this July 19, 2015 episode of “To The Point,” Calley talks about a number of topics ranging from the tornado that recently hit his hometown of Portland to an in initiative to make prescription drugs safer in the state to the roads.
