WYOMING, Mich. (WZZM) - About 200 senior citizens met Friday to learn more about Proposal 1, the plan to fix Michigan's roads. It would hike the sales tax by one cent for every dollar and would also provide more funding for schools and cities.
The nonpartisan Citizens Research Council made the presentation, along with state Senator Peter MacGregor, who supports Prop. 1.
MacGregor told the crowd the plan before voters on May 5 isn't perfect but "is a pretty darn good solution."
The CRC spokesman, Bob Schneider, said the immediate impact on gasoline prices, at today's rates, would be about an extra dime per gallon, if the measure passes. Schneider notes, however, if gas goes up to about $3.50 a gallon, the actual increase tied to Prop. 1 would decrease to about an extra two or three cents.
