Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – State Senator Tom Casperson checked in during the SUNNY Morning Show with Walt & Mike today to talk about road funding options on the Senate side of the State Capitol.
Casperson said the vote on Proposal 1 was disappointing for him, but showed the frustration of voters of the plan was extremely high.
The Escanaba Republican said that he is in agreement with Senate Majority Leader Arlan Meekhoff’s plan to approach the road funding issue at a deliberative pace and not rush to a hastily assembled plan for a solution.
Casperson added that the issues at play are very large and will not be coordinated in a quick manner.
He added that what is needed financially and legislatively to truly fix the roads will require looking at several state budgets for realignment and there is no fast fix.
