(CBS Detroit) – Rich Studley, CEO of the Michigan Chamber of Commerce, is convinced Michigan’s roads will finally get the attention and resources needed to repair them after some tough winters that have wreaked havoc for motorists.

He said during taping of “Michigan Matters” he remains hopeful a deal will be worked out in the lame duck hours of the Lansing legislature to address the need.

But he added if a deal wasn’t reached, he was prepared to help take the matter to voters next year.

Studley appeared on the show with Sandy Baruah, CEO of the Detroit Regional Chamber, and Charlie Beckham, Chairman Emeritus of the Michigan Black Chamber of Commerce.

The trio talked about Detroit and its emergence from bankruptcy and the road ahead. And they mentioned the close race Gov. Rick Snyder won over challenger Mark Schuaer and what it means for his second term.
