110th District State Representative Scott Dianda

Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Legislation introduced in Lansing by State Representative Scott Dianda creates early retirement packages to Michigan Department of Transportation employees to trim the ranks at M-DOT and applies those budgeted funds to road surfaces.

Dianda says as legislators put together a road funding package, adjustments to current expenditures need to be considered to ensure funds needed to fix and maintain the roads.

The Calumet Democrat’s bill includes a “70 and out” retirement formula adding age plus years of service; adds a 1.75 multiplier to the employee’s final average compensation; eliminates age restrictions on retirement; and allows M-DOT employees to purchase up to five years to get to 70.

Dianda says his bill will save money which can work toward improving roads and show a commitment to the efficiency of M-DOT operations.
