LANSING -- Gov. Jennifer Granholm Wednesday ramped up her support for changing the state gasoline tax from a flat 19 cents a gallon to a proportional rate that would raise more money for road repairs as gas prices rose.
Granholm, speaking to reporters, said Michigan's roads "are the pits."
"We have no long-term funding source to make sure the roads are smooth," she said.
"What we want to do is take the tax that is right now a flat tax and transform it into a percentage tax."
