LANSING (WKZO) -- State House Transportation Committee Chairman Wayne Schmidt is pushing an alternative to Governor Snyder's plans to raise money to fix roads.

The Traverse City Republican is seeking to raise vehicle registration fees by 20-percent and establish a new fee for hybrid vehicles and plug-in electric vehicles.  Those would average about 140-dollars.

Snyder wants to increase registration fees by 60-percent and increase fuel taxes to come up with at least 1.2-billion dollars.
