Report: Michigan lawmakers eye September 4th road funding vote

LANSING (WKZO) -- A vote on raising money to fix roads in Michigan could happen soon in the state legislature.

MIRS News reports Governor Snyder and four leading lawmakers are close to a deal to come up with the 1.2-billion dollars the governor wants for road work.  The plan is said to use money already collected at the pump in taxes.

At the same time, Democrats appear to have the governor's blessing to move forward with a ballot plan to increase the sales tax from six-percent to seven-percent, with the money going to schools.
