LANSING (AP) – A key lawmaker working to raise more money for Michigan roads says he hopes to recommend a package of bills for consideration by early May.

House Transportation and Infrastructure Chairman Wayne Schmidt says a plan in the works could generate at least $1.5 billion a year more.

Road funding advocates say they’re more optimistic because Schmidt’s committee took testimony on actual legislation.

That may be a positive sign because so far legislators haven’t acted on bills despite Governor Rick Snyder’s calls to do so.
