bad-yellow-line-roadjpg-55a2be0a87eeea1d_largeThe Legislature is on a summer break until mid-August. The House and the Senate both adjourned today (Tue.) with no quorums and no votes on road funding.

The effort to reach a road funding deal was the main reason for meeting into July. Republican state Representative Earl Poleski was one of the few lawmakers to make an appearance. But he says everyone knows there was no deal immiment, so the sparse attendance was no surprise.

“They’re back in their district doing their thing and that’s OK. But we’ve got to get on with it,” said Poleski.

Governor Rick Snyder is expected to call together the Legislature’s Republican and Democratic leaders to try and forge a bipartisan deal over the break.
