2017 House Bill 4583

Senate Roll Call 378: Passed

To divert money from a 7/8 cent per gallon gas tax originally levied to pay for cleanups of leaking underground fuel tanks abandoned decades earlier where no known party is liable ("orphan sites"). The revenue from this tax was the target of an earlier 2004 <a href="http://www.michiganvotes.org/2004-HB-6074">fund raid</a> that earmarked most of the money for other state spending. This bill would also divert money to subsidies for current underground fuel tank owners who are liable for contamination that occurred before 2015; to developers of "brownfield" property with leaking tanks; and to local governments for cleanups related to past road work.
