Supporters of a proposed state sales tax hike are taking their campaign to Michigan’s farmers.

Tuesday, Michigan voters will decide on a ballot proposal that will increase the state sales tax from 6% to 7%. Most of the money raised through the ballot question will go to fix Michigan’s roads. 

Governor Snyder met yesterday with agri-business leaders in Genesee County to make his pitch for the May 5th vote.

There’s one week to go before Michigan voters decide if they will support a one penny increase to the state sales tax. 

Union supporters will spend part of this week towing a school bus around the state.    You’ll know it if you see it. It’s the one with a massive concrete block crushing its windshield.

A new poll shows four in five Michigan voters have made up their minds about next month’s ballot question that would hike the state sales tax.

But the man who took the poll is taking the result with a grain of salt.

Mark Grebner, with Practical Political Consulting, says it’s not unusual to see consistent poll numbers going into a vote on a ballot question.

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.
