Letter from Governor Whitmer

As you’ve likely seen in the media, the road funding debate has had a lot of twists and turns over the past 6 months.  As we inch closer and closer to the end of the fiscal year, the question remains whether or not the legislature and governor can come together on a road funding solution.

Governor Whitmer is committed to investing what’s needed to maintain our transportation network today and into the future.  We believe that legislative leaders also want the same, they just feel differently on how we get there.

It should be a very interesting September at the Capitol in Lansing.  As things proceed and more information becomes available, MITA staff will continue to update the membership.

Attached to this bulletin is a letter to you from the Governor herself.  She wanted to reassure you all that her main focus is fighting for the necessary investments in our infrastructure.  Click here to read the letter.
