It's another attempt to raise money to fix the roads in Michigan.


Democratic legislators are proposing $1.2 billion to raise the state's corporate tax.


The proposal also includes a new 6 cents a mile tax for heavy trucks, and a bridge toll charge for tractor-trailers. The Democrat's plan will incorporate some of the Governor's budget plan including restoring tax breaks for pensioners, and raising taxes for certain businesses so they are taxed the same as traditional corporations.


This after Republicans have opposed Governor Whitmer's 45 cent a gallon fuel tax increase.
