LANSING, Mich. (AP) - High-level talks over fixing Michigan's deteriorating roads are at a standstill.
Republican and Democratic leaders can't agree much on how to even proceed.
Feeling burned by passage of a right-to-work law, Democrats won't consider tax increases without public assurances that Gov. Rick Snyder will veto other legislation. Democrats want a repeal of a law guaranteeing better wages on government construction projects taken off the table, along with talk of dividing the state's electoral votes proportionally.
Majority Republicans counter that Democrats must move beyond making demands and put forth their own road-funding proposals so everything is on the table.
Neither side appears to be budging. Snyder says progress is going slower than he'd like if the state budget is to be finalized by June.
