2019 Senate Bill 149

Senate Roll Call 97: Passed

The Senate version of the Department of Transportation budget for the fiscal year beginning Oct. 1, 2019. This would appropriate $5.130 billion in gross spending, compared to $4.843 billion the previous year, of which $1.342 billion is federal money. The budget does not include any spending that would be funded by a potential 45 cent per gallon gas tax increase proposed by Gov. Whitmer, but does accelerate into the FY 2019-2020 road repair budget (instead of in the following year) an annual $600 million income tax revenue earmark that was authorized in a <a href="https://www.michiganvotes.org/2015-HB-4370">2015 road funding package</a> that also increased motor fuel and vehicle registration taxes.
