Michigan drivers already pay some of the highest gas taxes in America and the governor’s proposed tax increase of 45 cents per gallon would give us the highest gas taxes in the country.

Before asking taxpayers for more, we need to work together on a solution that actually fixes the roads while protecting the hard-working people of Lenawee County and our great state.
