- Governor Whitmer and the Republican majority in the House of Representatives have both proposed increases in road funding through their respective budget recommendations.
- Governor Whitmer’s plan would increase road funding by $1.9 billion a year when fully phased in without requiring budget cuts, but would not exempt fuels from the sales tax.
- The House Republican plan would increase road funding by about $900 million annually once fully phased in, exempt fuels from the sales tax, and cut administrative budgets and information technology spending across all departments in Fiscal Year 2020.
