Lt. Gov. Brian Calley

(WLNS) – Michigan’s lt. governor was singing the praises of proposal 1, the plan to raise taxes to fix the roads at the Michigan Township Association Thursday.

Proposal 1 would increase the state sales tax from 6 percent to 7, except for fuel.

If passed, it would trigger a series of other laws.

Those other laws include measures to create higher wholesale fuel taxes and eliminate registration fee discounts.

Lt. Governor Brian Calley claims once voters understand all the details, they’ll support it.

“Here’s what’s actually is in proposal 1, here’s what it is and why it’s the way it is and what I’ve found is that most people once they, once they get past the sound bites and dig into what the proposal does and understand the fact that this actually does fix the roads,” said Lt. Gov. Brian Calley, (r), Michigan.

Voters will decide the fate of proposal one in a special election on May 5.
