Cox response to Whitmer Road Tax Hike

LANSING, Mich., March 4, 2019 The following is a statement from Michigan Republican Party Chair Laura Cox on Governor Whitmer’s proposed 45 cent per gallon gas tax. 

“Governor Whitmer promised that she would ‘fix the damn roads’ instead she is proposing a $2 billion tax increase that will break many Michiganders budgets. This comes just 4 years after Michiganders rejected a similar proposal by an 80/20 vote.  The people of Michigan deserve real solutions on this critical issue, not a tax and spend solution which places the burden on the states overtaxed families.”
