Michigan voters are being asked whether they approve a sales tax increase and changes in how gas is taxed to provide more funding for roads.
If passed, this proposal would raise state sales tax from 6 to 7 percent but exempt fuel as part of that package.
The goal of this bill is to boost long term funding, more than a billion dollars, to be used for road repairs as well as schools, and cities.
Governor Rick Snyder, one of the proposal's biggest supporters, says rejecting this proposal will result in more bridge closures and deteriorating roads.
