LANSING, MI (WTVB) - Michigan residents may not be paying more for gasoline or to register vehicles in order to fix the roads in Michigan. The state House has sent the Senate its budget bills for the next fiscal year, and they don't include either of those increases and instead take money from film incentives and unused budget cash to pay for roads.  

House Appropriations Chair Joe Haveman says no plan is complete, yet. Governor Rick Snyder's called for 1.2-billion in road funding, however.  The House budgets include more than 200-million dollars for K-12 funding than was provided this year as well.
