If the governor has proposed and legally circumvented the legislator regarding the proposed bridge,since no taxpayer money will be used. Why was taxpayer money used to do a 40 million dollar study objecting to the construction of this bridge; when in fact this was initiated by the owners of the Ambassador bridge too protect their own self interest? Why did we the tax payers of Michigan pay for this? Proposal 6 is badly written and needs to be shot down,not only because it is badly written,. but because it does not represent the actual interest of the Michigan taxpayers
