Voters will head to the polls on May 5th to vote for, or against, Proposal 1. That’s the legislative plan to raise the state sales tax from six-percent to seven-percent in order to fix Michigan’s crumbling roads. It’s estimated that the increase would raise more than one-billion dollars for roads annually. It would also raise about 200-million for school funding and 111-million dollars for local municipalities once its fully implemented. But that hinges on whether it’s approved by voters in just a few weeks. Governor Rick Snyder joins Stephen to talk about the state’s roads and the Proposal.
