Letters to the editor uspo lot, housing act and roads 3 main gas laws

The National Association of Realtors should be ashamed of themselves for advocating increasing the FHA’s reach by outlawing discrimination based on sexual orientation, especially considering that accommodating same sex couples is a violation of so many people’s religious beliefs.

Does our government think we all have dementia when it comes to increased funding for our roads? As I recall, this was already in place when our governor approved an increase in license and registration fees in addition to the higher tax on gasoline. In addition, the city of Sterling Heights wants taxpayers to approve a “one time tax” for their roads. Also, licensed drivers are facing another huge auto premium increase this July due to the catastrophic fund rumored to be “underfunded” though billions exist in this current account. Our elected officials need to hear our concern by phone, mail or pigeon carrier as I did.

This form for filling out a pothole claim needs to be revised. Four people I know from different cities were denied due to the generous amount of time the road commission has from the time the pothole is reported to the time they have to fix the defect. If you can provide a receipt that proves damage has occurred and repairs were done, payment should be automatic especially with the epidemic conditions that drivers had to endure this year. It would be of interest to note what the warranty is given from the contractors that repair our roads. Other states with similar weather conditions are not dealing with what we are in Michigan.
