Lawmakers in the Michigan House, fresh from a weeks-long summer break, expect to jump back in to the road funding debate as soon as today.
State Representative Pete Lucido says the Republican legislative leaders have agreed to a compromise funding plan that includes a gas tax increase, a diesel tax increase and pulling money from the general fund.
And he thinks the plan could be voted on this week.
Lucido doesn’t have concrete numbers on the tax increases saying lawmakers will consider a range of possible increases.
However he will say the range does not peak at 15 cents, which passed the Senate in June.
The governor and the legislative leaders – the four tops – are also slated to meet this week to talk about roads.
