2013 House Bill 4539

House Roll Call 779: Passed

To exempt gasoline and diesel purchases from sales tax. This is part of a package that includes a large fuel tax increase (<a href="http://www.michiganvotes.org/2014-HB-5477">House Bill 5477</a>), a ballot measure increasing the state sales tax from 6 percent to 7 percent (<a href="http://www.michiganvotes.org/2014-HJR-UU">House Joint Resolution UU</a>), and several related measures. The package represents a net tax increase of around $2 billion, of which $1.2 billion would go to roads, but none of this will happen if voters do not approve the sales tax hike in a May 5, 2015 election.
