Michigan House Republicans unveil "Build Better Michigan Roads"

House Speaker Jase Bolger says more is needed for roads.
House Speaker Jase Bolger says more is needed for roads.

LANSING (WKZO) -- Republicans in the state House are pushing a new proposal to spend at least 500-million dollars a year on fixing and building better roads in Michigan. In making the announcement at the state Capitol Thursday, House Speaker Jase Bolger noted they are proposing that nearly all of the money come from existing revenue sources.

All fuel taxes would be put toward roads instead of going into the general fund under the plan, and the state’s 19-cent per gallon gas tax would be repealed and replaced with a six-percent wholesale tax.
