Taking no chances that the grassroots come out in opposition, the Progressives strike.
The Michigan State Senate nearly doubles our state gasoline taxes.
Voting to raise the gas taxes by 17 cents at legislative maturity, RINO Senate Leader and tax raiser Randy Richardville’s bill will create even more hardships on those who are already struggling to put fuel in the tank. Much of it earmarked for mass transit too? Wonderful. The Ivory Tower reports:
The bill from Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville, R-Monroe, was passed quickly and without debate, by a 23-14 vote, after a number of false starts earlier in the day.
The Senate took “a big step to show people we’re serious,” Richardville said. “If you’ve got an alternative, we’re going to take a look at it.”
