Michigan voters will decide May 5 if they want to add a penny to the state sales tax to pay for fixing Michigan’s roads.  The proposal also includes money for schools and local governments.

A month from today, Michigan voters will decide a proposed increase in the state sales tax.

Polls suggest voters will reject the one-penny sales tax hike to pay for repairing Michigan roads. Money would also go to schools and local governments.

Opponents of the sales tax hike plan to step up their “vote no” campaign.
