Republican leaders in the state Legislature want to know how Governor Gretchen Whitmer plans to pay for several areas she wants to improve.
During her address, Governor Whitmer said Michigan has a funding crisis for education and she discussed Michigan’s crumbling roads and infrastructure problems. But she didn’t say how the state could pay for improvements.
Speaker of the House Lee Chatfield:
“I think many of the issues were identified of challenges that our state is facing, but I do believe there were still some campaign trail rhetoric in that speech.”
