2013 Senate Bill 147

Replace diesel and gas tax with higher sales tax

Introduced in the Senate

Feb. 5, 2013

Introduced by Sen. Roger Kahn (R-32)

To repeal the state motor fuel carrier tax, and replace it with a 2 percent sales tax increase that (mostly) would be earmarked to roads. This bill is the repealer, and cannot become law unless Senate Joint Resolution J also does, which contains the sales tax hike, and would require a vote of the people. The motor fuel carrier tax is designed to tax interstate truckers for the fuel they burn in Michigan but not the fuel they burn outside the state.

Referred to the Committee on Appropriations
