Michigan House Approves Brand New $1.2 B Road Funding Plan
Michigan House Republicans jump started a road funding update Wednesday night by unveiling and approving a new $1.2 billion plan, advancing the nine-bill package with little support from Democrats and without assurances that the Senate or governor are on board.
The House Speaker championed the proposal as a grand compromise for his caucus that incorporates key elements of previous plans.
The new package is projected to eventually generate $600 million in new revenue for roads through higher taxes and fees, while dedicating another $600 million a year from the general fund by fiscal year 2021. Here's more from the Lansing State Journal.
