Michigan Republicans introduce legislation to borrow $100 million for "light rail" projects

Some people aren't getting it!


House Bill 4035 was introduced by Rep. Wayne Schmidt (R-104) on January 13, 2011, to authorize up to $100 million in state borrowing and additional debt (“selling bonds”) to build a new “fixed-guideway transit” system and other rail projects (government "light rail" projects).  It is co-sponsored by Sharon Tyler (R-78) and Greg MacMaster (R).  Here's a link to the bill:




I believe this legislation is something to be concerned about because it is part of Governor Snyder's 10-point plan (see #5 on the following link):
