Proposal 1 Support

LANSING, MI (WLNS) – People in favor of passing Proposal 1 in May are getting big support today.

Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero and Ingham County Sheriff Gene Wriggelsworth are among several local leaders that will urge people to vote yes on May 5th.

The proposal raises the sales tax and gets rid of the gas tax in favor of a wholesale tax on fuel. It would generate more than a billion dollars a year for roads and tens of millions more for education and local government.

Our capital correspondent Tim Skubick will have more on the new support for the May ballot proposal tonight on 6 News.

We welcome thoughts and comments from our viewers. We ask that everyone keep their remarks civil and respectful. Postings that contain profanity, racist, or potentially libelous remarks will be deleted. We will delete any commercial postings, as well.
