Michigan congresswoman slams governor's gas tax proposal

By  | 

LANSING, Mich. (WNDU) - One Michigan state representative says there's zero chance the Michigan House will approve a 45-cent gas tax increase.

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's plan would generate an additional $2 billion in revenue to fix Michigan's roads.

But Republican Congresswoman Beth Griffin says state leaders need to get creative instead of jacking up taxes, according to our reporting partners at WSJM.

If the gas tax is approved, no other state in the country would have a higher gas tax than Michigan.
