Before and After

Michigan residents will vote on a constitutional amendment on May 5th to increase revenue for roads and stabilize funding for schools and local governments.

The proposal will increase the sales tax from 6 percent to 7 percent. If the proposal passes, bills that passed the legislature late last year will go into effect providing increased revenue for roads. 

Within three years, $1.2 billion in new revenue will be available for roads allowing road agencies to make positive steps toward improving our roads and bridges.
