Michigan Townships Association backing Proposal 1

LANSING (WKZO) -- The Michigan Townships Association is the latest group to put its support behind a "yes" vote Tuesday on Proposal 1.

The ballot question would shift taxes collected by state government around to local governments to ensure they don't lose funding from the phase out of the personal property tax on businesses. Lawmakers have voted to repeal that tax, with Tuesday's vote being the final piece of the puzzle.

The PPT revenue funds local police, fire and ambulance services statewide, and Proposal 1 has the backing of the Michigan Chamber of Commerce, most cities, and lawmakers from both parties.
