link: Proposal overhauls funding for Michigan's roads 

A construction industry group is pushing to change gas taxes in Michigan to raise more money for roads and other transportation needs. 

 

Two major changes would fund the bulk of a proposal by the Michigan Infrastructure and Transportation Association (MITA) to raise an additional $1.5 billion a year in state transportation funds. 

 

The plan, announced Wednesday, would get rid of the state's flat 19-cents-per-gallon gas tax and 15-cents-a-gallon diesel tax and replace them with a percentage tax that fluctuates with gas prices. Those changes would raise revenue by more than $900 million a year, the group says.
