Please help us fix Clinton Township roads.

  1. Clinton Township
  2. Residents of your district, like me, pay our car registrations and gas taxes. Those funds are then distributed under Public Act 51 of 1951, diverting far too many of those dollars to the far reaches of Michigan and under-funding highly populated counties.  

    Local communities are then required to provide matching funds to cover the shortfall provided to our County Department of Roads. Counties are then pressured to further spread too few dollars to cover the dramatically higher cost of road widening in high-growth communities. People in older communities with smaller or declining fund balances either pay dramatically higher taxes or see their roads deteriorate.     

    As our state legislator, we need you to prioritize structural reform of road funding to:

    • Fix PA 51 of 1951 - Fund roads based on their width, not just length (lane miles vs. center line miles).
    • Bring Dollars Home - Direct car registration dollars towards fixing roads in the community where the car is registered.
    • Fix Existing Roads First - Prioritize funding for maintenance, repair, and resurfacing of existing roads rather than developing new roads.
    • Subdivision Street Funding - Help communities replace deteriorating subdivision streets rather than saddle residents with financially crippling special assessments or higher taxes.

    As my elected legislator, I encourage you to fight to bring more road dollars home to your district.
