Sales Tax Increase
Voters will decide whether they want to increase the state sales tax and raise $1.3 billion a year more for transportation infrastructure.
“The May 5 ballot proposal on roads is going to be the lens through which everything gets done in the first six months.”
A proposed tax hike aimed at improving Michigan’s transportation infrastructure and schools is heading to voters.
The fate of the tax hike rests entirely with voters.
Legislators think voters will approve an increase in the sales tax if they say it’s going to education verses fixing Michigan’s crumbling roads.
