LANSING, Mich. – State Sen. Peter MacGregor, R-Rockford, issued the following statement on Wednesday in response to Proposal 1 not being passed:
“Michigan voters decided not to approve Proposal 1. While voters ultimately did not agree that this was a good way to fix our state’s roads and bridges, everyone can agree that our roads and bridges are bad and getting worse.
“Despite Proposal 1’s failure, the problem remains and something must be done. Now, lawmakers will go back to the drawing board, and I am eager to work with my colleagues to come up with an agreeable, long-lasting solution to this very real problem.”
