Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – 109th District State Representative John Kivela joined the SUNNY Morning Show with Walt & Mike today to talk about future road funding plans following the resounding defeat of Proposal 1.
Kivela said that the defeat of Proposal 1 came due to it being too convoluted.
He added that another factor was the amount of misinformation about the proposal being spread by special interests.
The Marquette Democrat also said the plan recently put forth by Republican Speaker of the House Kevin Cotter is a “smoke and mirrors” plan that is unrealistic.
Kivela said the plan really only serves as a starting point for conversations on solving the road funding issue in Michigan.
