LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Gov. Gretchen Whitmer says she will use her first State of the State address to focus on Michigan’s “fundamentals” — such as the roads, drinking water and workforce.
The Democrat will speak Tuesday night during a joint session of the Republican-led Legislature.
She plans to focus in part on the magnitude of the problem with deteriorating roads and bridges , asking drivers and businesses to give feedback on what pothole-ridden infrastructure is costing them. A detailed proposal will likely wait until she proposes her budget in March.
