2012 Senate Bill 911

House Roll Call 702: Passed

To give the regional transit authority proposed by Senate Bill 909 the power to impose a higher vehicle registration tax in the region to pay for buses and other public transportation. A vote of the people would be required, and if approved region-wide the tax would still be imposed on individual communities that vote against it (no local "opt-out"). This is part of Gov. Rick Snyder’s road and transit tax proposal.
