St. Rep. Yednock says infrastructure program will be good in a number of ways

Ottawa Democratic St. Rep. Lance Yednock says not only will a statewide infrastructure program be valuable just as a public good, it’ll spur a lot of apprenticeships and new construction companies.

Yednock talked to WCMY about it after the governor’s State of the State Address last week.

On other issues, Yednock says everyone wants clean energy to protect the environment and for the jobs. He wants something done to help those who lose jobs because of the shift away from dirtier energy production such as coal mining. And he says working toward more state funding for schools will help relieve local property taxes.
