Schroeder issues statement regarding governors gas tax proposal

first_img06Mar Schroeder issues statement regarding governor’s gas tax proposal State Representative Andrea Schroeder, of Independence Township and vice chair of the House Financial Services Committee, made the following statement after Gov. Gretchen Whitmer presented her proposed budget to a joint House and Senate Appropriations Committee:“Like anyone else who drives in this state, I absolutely agree more must be done to improve Michigan roads. However, the governor’s plan of nearly TRIPLING the gas tax would mean Michigan drivers would be paying the highest gas taxes in the country. This alone would cost my own family $739 more in taxes annually for just one of our family vehicles. That is simply unaffordable for many families and not a responsible measure.“Michigan has already been doing more in recent years to repair our deteriorating infrastructure. Last year, House Republicans added $600 million for road repair projects – without adding taxes or fees – in addition to the 2015 funding plan that included a guaranteed $600 million annually to speed up the process of fixing Michigan’s roads.“Michigan residents deserve better roads, good schools and safe drinking water. As state representative, I will work to make sure these things happen but, most importantly, that this budget is done the right way. We must continue to provide great value and deliver results for our hard-working citizens, while being fiscally responsible.“With that being said, I look forward to working with my colleagues in the House and Senate to craft a responsible, effective state budget that keeps our economy growing and flourishing.”### Categories: News,Schroeder Newslast_img read more
