Michigan Road Funding Study

(WLNS) – In May, everyone will have an opportunity to vote on a one percent sales tax increase which would help generate more than a billion dollars a year to help fix Michigan’s roads.

Money would also go towards education and local communities and while the extra money is something many local government officials says they need, a new University of Michigan survey found the idea does not have a lot of support.

Results show only 36 percent of local government officials in mid-Michigan who responded support the sales tax increase.

The area that received the highest approval was Southwest Michigan at 55 percent.
