The Pure Michigan campaign spent around $34 million last year to attract tourists.  Those touring the state found beautiful landscapes, cities loaded with activity and plenty of potholes.

According to the Lansing State Journal, it's past time state lawmakers get serious about roads in Michigan, and it's time voters take note of which officials promise long term solutions but settle for less.

Michigan Legislators, as Governor Snyder mentioned in this year's State of the State address, are currently pulling together $175 million for a fast patch to help address the problem.

Across the state, Michigan roads are in a state of disrepair.  Residents and tourists alike continue to pay consequences.

Increases in personal car repair costs, irreparable damage to commercial vehicles and higher rates of dangerous accidents are just some of the ways Michigan drivers are impacted.

Look at roads in Ohio; in Indiana; in Wisconsin.  Every neighbor and every other state with a similar climate seems to have better roads than we do.
