Poll Shows Views on Surplus Budget

A new poll conducted says a majority of Michigan residents would like the state to spend surplus budget money on education and repairing roads. There were 600 people surveyed in the recent poll and just eleven-percent liked the idea of a tax cut. Governor Rick Snyder and other legislators are proposing some tax relief with the estimated budget surplus of nearly one billion dollars. Republicans have suggested rolling back the state income tax to three-point-nine percent by 2017 and restoring the homestead property tax credit that ended in 2011.
