Senator Gary Peters Embarks on Motorcycle Across Michigan Tour

Senator Gary Peters stopped in Traverse City on Monday as part of his annual Motorcycle Across Michigan tour.

Senator Peters and FEMA highlighted the Storm Revolving Loan Fund that was secured in the bi-partisan infrastructure law. Senator Peters had authored the act, passed it into law, and secured funding for it.

The $500 million secured will go towards helping states finance mitigation projects and cities protect against coastal erosion, rising water levels and flooding.

Senator Peters toured a section of Bluff Road on Old Mission Peninsula.

“Had we invested in making more resilient infrastructure and identifying potential problems before they occur, it’s not cheap but it’s a whole lot cheaper than it is to fix a problem once it gets so bad like we’re seeing here right now,” said Senator Peters. “This is not unique; what we’re seeing here at Old Mission Point are problems all across the state of Michigan.”

Money for communities will be available early next year.
