LaSata Praises New Road Funding

The Michigan House on Wednesday voted to spend $175 million more on road repairs. State Representative Kim LaSata tells WSJM News the move was timely.

“As we know, it’s a top priority right now, especially as the snow has melted,” LaSata said. “All the snow at least filled in some of the potholes. We no longer have the snow to fill in the potholes. So, we need our roads fixed.”

LaSata tells us the House vote sets aside $1.15 million in Berrien County, along with $79,000 for Benton Harbor, $18,000 for Bridgman, $12,000 for Coloma, $59,000 for St. Joseph, $11,000 for Stevensville, $13,000 for Watervliet. LaSata notes the funding was all left over from last year.
