You’re likely hearing a great deal of advertising rhetoric both for and against Proposal 1to fix Michigan roads. As voters in Michigan, we are asked to weigh in on this important issue on May 5.

So that you may make a fully informed decision, we are sharing this link from the Michigan Chamber of Commerce. That organization, like the Howell Area Chamber of Commerce, is not taking a stand on the proposal, but we want to make sure our membership is fully informed. The link below provides policy reports and media coverage from across the state, analysis by the Anderson Economic Group, the Citizens Research Council and the Mackinac Center, as well as nonpartisan review by both the House and Senate fiscal agencies.

Here is the link: http://www.michamber.com/May5-Ballot-Proposal

I hope your find the information helpful when you go to the polls on May 5.

Pat Convery is president of the Howell Area Chamber of Commerce.
