(WLNS) – Michigan is known as an automotive leader in the nation but also known for having some of the worst roads in the country.
Lawmakers say they have come up with a solution to fix our crumbling infrastructure with a 1 percent sales tax increase. Governor Rick Snyder says the state will have an extra $1 billion more every year to keep Michiganders’ driving smoothly and safely.
The plan also includes an additional $300 million for schools, $94 million for local governments and $260 million in tax relief for lower income families. But that is just a small sliver of the proposal.
There is a lot more to this which is why State Representative Earl Poleski is hosting the second of four ballot proposal town hall meetings today to help explain in detail and answer any questions.
If you are interested the event is from 6 until 8 tonight at Napoleon Township Hall in Jackson County located on Brooklyn Road.
The public is welcome and encouraged to attend. Everyone will see this proposal on the ballot in May.
