Michigan Farm Bureau supports fixing the roads now

Michigan Farm BureauThe Michigan Farm Bureau – the state’s largest agricultural organization – supports fixing Michigan’s roads now:

Governor Snyder says he’s making transportation funding a top priority! At last year’s county Farm Bureau annual meetings, Michigan Farm Bureau members identified funding of roads and bridges as a top issue of concern/focus when surveyed about Michigan’s Ag Plan (MAP). We have an opportunity to advance a solution on this issue & must support the Governor in every corner of Michigan, in every way possible. (Facebook)

For the first time since 1997, a Michigan governor is willingly & aggressively stepping up to the plate to tackle one of the most legislatively avoided issues in our state– transportation funding! We cannot allow Governor Snyder to be undermined by legislators who are anti-new revenue. We all recognize the need to fix our roads & bridges, but we can’t accomplish this with reforms alone. NOW is the time to use MFB’s Legislative Action Center,www.michfb.com/legislative/action, & tell your legislator there is local support of new road funding where needed. (Facebook)
