Represenative Miller Says Lawmakers Should Work on "Plan B" for Roads
State Representative Aaron Miller says lawmakers and the Snyder administration should not count on voters approving a sales tax increase to boost road funding.
The freshman Republican says the Legislature should be working on a “Plan B” in case voters reject the one-percent sales tax increase on May 5th.
Miller says the entire package to boost funding for transportation depends on the ballot proposal to raise the sales tax. He says citizens want a long-term fix for road funding. But he says some voters were frustrated that the Legislature put the issue on the ballot, rather than pass a comprehensive package.
Miller is opposed to the ballot proposal to raise the sales tax. He says there are some good aspects of it. But he says lawmakers should be able to craft something better to fund road improvements. Miller was interviewed for WMUK’s WestSouthwest, a longer version of the interview can be heard on Thursday.
