Feedback at 5:00: New Road Funding Plan

A new plan to pay for Michigan’s roads is stirring up plenty of talk statewide.

Last night, the state House passed a bill to raise $1.2 billion a year for roads, but it wouldn’t be put into play until 2020.

Now it heads to the state Senate.

Along with raising the tax per gallon on gas and diesel, the bill package would increase the fess drivers pay for license plates by about $55 per vehicle.

The motion would also take money out of the state’s general fund for roads.

Critics say taking money from the fund would spell financial disaster.

What do you think of the plan?

If you don’t agree, what do you think should be done instead?
