Governor Gretchen Whitmer set some big goals in her first State of the State address Tuesday night. She’s calling for major investments in infrastructure, education, and clean water, among other things. But Republicans are skeptical about the costs of her ideas.
Governor Whitmer wasted little time in her speech hitting on the subject that defined her campaign: fixing the roads. She said Michigan residents are paying for poor road conditions at the auto repair shop.
“We are fixing our cars and paying a road tax that doesn’t even fix the damn roads,” she said.
