Rep. Roger Hauck supports bill for funding road repairs
State Rep. Roger Hauck, R-Union Township, voted in favor of a bill that would allocate money to repairing roads.
According to a press release, Hauck voted for the House of Representatives Bill 4321 on Feb. 21.
The bill, approved by the State House, includes money for road preservation and construction. The $175 million bill could be used as early as this summer, according to the release.
“We have additional money available right now, and there is no better place to spend it than improving our roads,” Hauck said in the release. “Everyone is sick of the potholes and the rough pavement. People deserve better road conditions and we are taking a step in the right direction by approving this plan.”
The bill would include money for roads in counties, cities and villages in Michigan, the release stated. It noted the estimate amounts of funding are $173,048 for Mount Pleasant and $568,532 for Isabella County.
The allocated money for the bill is left over from a previous state government budget cycle, which means it wouldn't require additional fees, taxes or budget cuts.
