CALL YOUR STATE SENATOR: Senate poised to jeopardize road funding with parks fee

The Senate is poised to vote tomorrow morning on legislation (SB 388 and 389) that would allow an optional tax on the vehicle registration fee to pay for state parks.

While we are not opposed to state parks, for almost five years legislators have told us that “now is not a good time” to raise the vehicle registration fee to pay for road improvements.  Approval of this legislation would mean that parks would begin receiving millions of dollars from a revenue source that is constitutionally dedicated to transportation!  State parks funding has apparently become a higher priority than infrastructure.

A new tax on top of the vehicle registration fee would make it much more difficult to provide new road dollars.

Call your state Senator today and tell them to oppose passage of SB 388-389.  Time is of the essence!

Please feel free to contact Mike Nystrom at or Keith Ledbetter at or call the MITA office at 517-347-8336 with any questions or comments.
