GRANHOLM-GASOLINE TAX
(2007-12-19)
(wgvu) - GOVERNOR GRANHOLM SAYS SHE DOESN'T WANT TO
INCREASE THE GASOLINE TAX TO RAISE MORE MONEY TO FIX MICHIGAN'S
ROADS AND BRIDGES.
SHE SAYS PEOPLE ALREADY ARE HURTING FINANCIALLY AND INCREASING
THE TAX WOULD BE A BURDEN.
SOME ROAD BUILDING GROUPS HAVE SUGGESTED RAISING THE STATE'S
19-CENT-PER-GALLON GASOLINE TAX BY 3 CENTS A YEAR OVER THREE YEARS
TO KEEP UP WITH THE STATE'S NEED FOR MORE ROAD REPAIR MONEY.
GRANHOLM SAYS A STUDY GROUP IS LOOKING AT POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS.
SHE SAYS SHE'D LIKE TO SEE MICHIGAN GET A LARGER SHARE OF
FEDERAL HIGHWAY DOLLARS, BUT SAYS OTHER OPTIONS WILL BE NEEDED.
