2012 Senate Bill 920: Increase state fuel taxes
  1. Introduced by Sen. Roger Kahn (R) on January 26, 2012, to eliminate the state “motor carrier fuel tax,” which would be replaced by the (substantially higher) fuel wholesale tax proposed by Senate Bill 918 (and House Bill 5298). This is part of Gov. Rick Snyder’s road and transit tax proposal.
    • Referred to the Senate Appropriations Committee on January 26, 2012.

How about telling Barack Obama to get his green energy agenda to get better fuel economy:

This is just about as business unfriendly as you can get! You're talking about essentially doubling the tax on diesel fuel, yet we need trucks to transport our recovering manufacturing industries. You already play partisan footsie and dont get the new Detroit Bridge authorized, and now, to punish the taxpayers for not understand the issue (which y'all couldnt explain without a teleprompter because you're too busy wheeling and dealing to research the issue), you raise the diesel tax making truckers even more reluctant to operate in the state! You are ALL incompetent-particularly YOU, Kahn. Why dont you do something useful, like force the unions to stop robbing the home health care workers with the scam you helped set up!Time to get rid of these political dynasty families in the Michigan legislature!
