Nancy Smith understands the importance of infrastructure investment. Currently, Michigan ranks among the bottom ten states in infrastructure spending, which is reflected in the critical condition of our state highways and local roads. As your state representative, Nancy will work to reverse decades of disinvestment in our roads.
Nancy also recognizes the role of heavy trucks in accelerating the deterioration of our state highways. To reduce the impact of heavy trucks on our infrastructure, she will support efforts to reduce the state’s maximum weight limit for trucks, which is currently twice the federal standard.
Finally, Nancy believes we must rebuild our infrastructure in a way that is environmentally sustainable. Therefore, she will support efforts to increase investment in mass transit and cycling infrastructure.
