Senate Roll Call 95 on
2020 Senate Bill 716: Require legislative authorization for transportation commission borrowing

Passed 22 to 16 in the Senate on March 4, 2020.
    See Who Voted "Yes" and Who Voted "No".
To prohibit a state transportation commission from borrowing more than $100 million in any fiscal year without first giving the legislature at least 30 days' notice. The bill would empower the legislature to halt the borrowing with a majority vote in the House and Senate. If this bill were passed and signed by the Governor (unlikely), it would likely lead to suspension of $3.5 billion in road repair debt that Gov. Gretchen Whitmer ordered the commission to approve, which it did on Jan. 30, 2020.
