This seems to be on the right track, yes?
So, what happens if HB 5477 now becomes extended by two years, the already sales tax portion is gradually dedicated for road maintenance over same period with Wholesale sales tax increasing to 7% (Rack Price) and MDOT controlling said taxation thereafter?
“the taxpayers are the last place to look”. Sure it is. Folks, it’s all just a Shell Game in Lansing.

The fine folks over at MCC may as well get this plan out of their heads because this state has a load of English as a second language deadbeats waiting in the wings when .FEDGOV tightens its pursestrings.
Immigrants and their U.S.-born children make up more than 40 percent of new Medicaid recipients at a cost of $4.6 billion, according to an analysis of government data.
The Center for Immigration Studies, a low-immigration advocacy group, released a report early Thursday that found both legal and illegal

Part of the increased enrollment came as a result of the new healthcare law’s expansion of Medicaid to impoverished and low-income adults.
“The high rate and significant growth in Medicaid associated with immigrants is mainly the result of a legal immigration system that admits large numbers of immigrants with relatively low-levels of education, many of whom end up poor and uninsured,” the report says. “This fact, coupled with the extensive supports we provide to low-income residents, unavoidably creates very significant costs for taxpayers.”

The bill the Senate passed goes now to the House, where the cadre of “no tax hike” Republicans who killed it in the spring remain unconvinced Michigan needs more money for roads.
Mr. Finley, likes to speak of Rep. Rob VerHeulen (R-Meijer Thrifty Acres), and his bill as if HB 5477 does not exist nor was passed in the House on May 8, 2014.
One more thing for Mr. Finley, who likes to paint fiscally responsible Conservatives as obstructionists…
