More funds for road maintenance

The state Senate has approved the immediate spending of 100-million dollars for “special winter road maintenance” funds. The vote follows concerns from local road commissions who say they’ve already spent most or all of their winter budgets. Not everyone is ready to back the amount of spending however. Both the governor and Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville were non committal about the amounts. The spending measure also calls for 115-(m) million dollars to prop up a shortfall in the Health Insurance Claims Assessment program. The bill now goes to the House.  (MRN)
