Skubick: Searching for funds to fix the roads


LANSING, Mich (WLNS) – With pothole season in full bloom, a House committee at the Capitol has voted an additional $160 million to fix the roads.

But Republicans rejected two Democratic plans to boost that by another $150 million.

In his budget presentation Gov. Rick Snyder asked lawmakers to take a surplus of $175 million and pump it into the potholes.

The House budget committee voted for $160 million and re-funneld 15 million into something else.
