Earlier this year the governor and legislative leaders established a transportation funding task force to make recommendations on alternatives for funding transportation in Michigan. MITA Vice President of Government and Public Relations Mike Nystrom serves on the task force, which meets monthly through November.
MITA members are encouraged to attend the meetings and voice their opinions about the impact state transportation funding has on your businesses and your local economy. Your input needs to be heard loud and clear in order for the task force to offer recommendations to the governor that will effectively increase transportation funding and thus help your business be more successful in the future.
The next task force meeting will be held from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., Monday, Sept. 8, at Lansing Community College, West Campus, 5708 Cornerstone Drive, Lansing. The meeting schedule, which is subject to change, is listed below. MITA will keep you informed on the times, locations of meetings and any date changes.
