A motorist prepares to pump gasoline in Detroit. A coalition of business interests calls for higher taxes to fix Michigan's bad roads, as Gov. Rick Snyder's road funding plan gets little traction in the Legislature. Snyder has proposed an increase in the gasoline tax and higher vehicle registration fees to pay for $1.2 billion per year in road maintenance and repairs over the next decade.
