Local residents with questions or concerns about the state’s budget, roads or other recent legislative topics are encouraged to call in and participate in a telephone town hall, hosted by Price.

"This is a great way to discuss important issues in the comfort of your own home," she said.

Price will be available starting at 6 p.m., with special guest Rep. Rob VerHeulen, chairman of the House Appropriations Transportation Subcommittee, joining her during the conversation to give his insight into the ongoing discussions of how to best fund Michigan’s road repairs.

Residents who would like to participate in the tele-town hall can do so toll-free by calling 855-756-7520 and entering 25296#.

“The state budget that was recently passed affects every single resident of Michigan, so it’s important to address any questions people may have about it,” Price said. “We have been working on several other tough topics in Lansing over the past several weeks as well, such as the critical question of how to best fund our roads, and this tele-town hall is a great way to connect with local residents and hear their feedback, right from the comfort of their own homes.”

If unable to participate on the call, residents can contact Price in Lansing at any time by calling toll-free 888-238-1008, by emailing amandaprice@house.mi.gov or through her website at www.RepAmandaPrice.com.

How handy. Amanda doesn't even have to fly back from her 3-month vacation to 'take care of business'. How about this Amanda: FIX THE ROADS!

Vast Right Wing...

So, Representative Price wants to talk about raising taxes (AGAIN) this time to fix the roads. Why over the phone? In my opinion it’s because she does not want to answer questions that she would rather not answer.
Rep Price is from the 89th District, one of the most conservative districts in Michigan, is she going to tell us of her support of items that do not represent the values of those she pledges to represent?
Here are some of her recent accomplishments:
ObamaCare – Obama’s Michigan Medicaid Expansion
Common Core
The latest bailout of Detroit
Raising the Minimum Wage
Sounds like she is out of touch with the 89th District and needs to be replaced in the Primary Election on August 5th.

Wow "Vast right wing" does not want to help anyone. What a heartless party. Worship the money. What a shame there are people like that in America. Amanda Price sounds like a fair Republican, willing to work across the party line.

How can she get anything done when these politicians are off for a paid vacation during this summer? It's simply talk.

Here is the actual voting record for Amanda Price....http://votesmart.org/candidate/k...

The last vote according to this link was in February when she voted nay to allowing individuals to resell admission tickets. I also note she voted yea to expanding areas where concealed weapons are authorized, which was wisely vetoed by Gov Snyder.

She also co-authored a bill that would allow drug testing for "certain" welfare recipients, a bill tailored after others in the country that are hung up in the courts as being unconstitutional. Besides the unconstitutional infringements on civil rights, all studies have shown that there is not a greater population of drug users among welfare recipients than the general public; that it costs the taxpayers more for testing than can be justified by the results; and the main advantage is the extra profits made by the drug testing companies.

Amanda Price is a Republican and does not stand with the people. I will complement any politician, Republican or Democrat, who votes for issues that help the poor and middleclass. I could never vote for A Republican, because on the whole they are for special interests and forcing Christianity on everyone.
