DETROIT, Mich. – Business Leaders for Michigan, the state’s business roundtable, strongly applauded today the Senate passage of a long-term solution to fix Michigan’s roads and bridges.
Doug Rothwell, BLM President & CEO, said that today’s Senate action will help existing Michigan companies and prospective businesses see that our state is willing to take care of itself.
“Business executives rank access to and condition of highways as one of the top factors in making site location decisions,” Rothwell said. “If we want to protect the jobs we have and grow new jobs, we need to fix our roads and bridges. Today was a major step in the right direction.”
