MITA’s Response to Governor Whitmer’s 2021 January 27 SOS Address

“The Michigan Infrastructure & Transportation Association applauds Governor Whitmer for prioritizing infrastructure investments, and looks forward to working with her and our partners in the Legislature in the coming year. Poll after poll continues to show that Michigan’s roads continue to be a top priority for residents – second only to ending the pandemic. We also fully believe that funding underground water infrastructure is paramount to solving the decades-old problem of under-funded infrastructure in Michigan. The condition of our infrastructure  not only impacts the financial health of our state, but the public health of our communities as well. Tonight is an important step for this year’s legislative work, and we are ready and prepared to find bipartisan solutions to fix Michigan’s infrastructure problems for the long term.”
