Gov. Rick Snyder says it's time to raise the federal gas tax to fix Michigan's disintegrating roads. Snyder says the state has done its part by increasing fees and fuel taxes, and local governments have come up with their own ways to increase revenue. Now, he says its the federal government's turn to step up.

This Week in Review, Weekend Edition host Rebecca Kruth and senior news analyst Jack Lessenberry talk about whether that's a realistic expectation.

They also talk about Abdul El-Sayed's request for a judge to rule on his eligibility to run for governor, Gov. Snyder's official endorsement of Lt. Gov. Brian Calley as his successor, and the state of Ohio's declaration that  western Lake Erie is "impaired."
