Michigan Republicans Propose $400M For Road Fix
The Michigan Republicans have proposed a $400 million shift from general funds into the transportation budget in hopes to fix Michigan's roads.
On Thursday, a $5.4 billion transportation spending plan had won the approval from a 4-2 party line vote. This would help boost funding by 7.4%, but will spend less than the $400 million Gov. Gretchen Whitmer had offered with the 45-cents-a-gallon fuel tax increase.
The tax hike had been rejected, and Whitmer as well as Republicans seem to be feuding on where to divert funds for the roads.
