LANSING (WKZO) -- The Senate Appropriations Committee in Lansing has approved a plan to shift 100-million dollars from a road repair fund to local governments.

The money will help those counties and municipalities cover the huge cost of snow removal this winter.  The plan calls for 39.1-million dollars going to the state transportation budget, 39.1-million sent to counties and 21.8-million to municipalities.

The spending bill will need the approval of both the full Senate and House before any funds can be moved.
