Rep. Lightner, having reserved the right to explain her protest against the passage of the bill, made the following statement:

溺r. Speaker and members of the House:

The entire time I have been serving in this body there has been a lot of talk about 素ixing the damn roads.

So far, the governor has put our state further into debt by taking on bonds but that only resulted in more orange barrels on our interstates and highways, not the local roads we drive in our rural communities.

Michigan still hasn稚 done anything to address the crumbling local roads that families travel every day the roads we all take on our way to work, or when we池e running our kids to soccer practice and grabbing a few groceries from the store.

We started off this year with close to a 9-billion-dollar budget surplus and a historic opportunity to finally make some real progress fixing local roads and bridges.

Unfortunately, the transportation budget proposal before us today fails to make a dent in the problem.

Considering that massive surplus, we should be able to spend a lot more than $400 million on local roads. And we most definitely should be able to put more than a $100 placeholder in for the bridge bundling initiative to address failing bridges that are in critical need of repair.

The spending plan before us commits nearly $75 million to special projects like drones, e-bike purchase incentives, and electric vehicle ventures that could instead be invested in local roads and bridges.

Not only does this budget make a weak investment in local roads, but it also changes the formula by which our local road funding is distributed to prioritize big cities and hurt rural neighborhoods.

Taking all of that into consideration, I must urge a no vote on House Bill 4309.
