Roads Teeters As Sides Try To Strike Deal

The effort to pass legislation raising $1.2 billion for roads had the feel of a rollercoaster Wednesday as top legislators and Governor Rick Snyder met three times with the mood grim in the afternoon only to turn optimistic in the evening.

When Mr. Snyder and the Legislative Quadrant concluded talks about 7:30 p.m., they scheduled their next meeting for 8 a.m. Thursday. The three conference committees for the major anticipated bills in any eventual agreement (HB 4539*, HB 4630* and HB 5477*) posted notices for 8:30, 8:35 and 8:40 a.m. Thursday as well, although they almost surely will recess at the call of the chair pending the finalization of a deal.
