2019 Senate Bill 149

House Roll Call 240: Passed

The House-Senate conference report for the Fiscal Year 2019-2020 Department of Transportation budget. This would appropriate $5.386 billion in gross spending, compared to $4.843 billion enrolled the previous year. Some $1.252 billion of this budget is federal money. The legislature did not enact a 45 cent gas per gallon gas tax increase proposed by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (which was never introduced as legislation), but did include $468 million in state income tax revenue earmarked to roads by Republican majorities in the two previous legislatures. The current majority also directed $400 million in additional state revenue dollars generated by a growing economy to this budget for road repairs.
