The Michigan House of Representatives has Passed Senate Road Plans
The Michigan House of representatives has passed the Senate roads plan, and it now moves to Governor Rick Snyder's desk to sign. The plan includes tax relief in the form of changes to the Homestead Property tax credit and vehicle registration fee and gas tax hikes are not too big.
Governor Snyder held a press conference shortly after the Hose voted on the bills, and pulled a pen from his pocket when asked about how quickly he hopes to sign the bills.
This is an investment of $1.2 billion over a number of years, but it's a sustainable investment, Snyder said. He says this plan will lead to better and safer roads in a fiscally responsible way. Here's the latest from the Lansing State journal.
