Election Day.

Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Michigan voters gave a resounding “no” to Proposal 1 yesterday. The measure to increase the sales tax a penny was designed to help raise $1.2 billion for roads. Nearly 80-percent of voters across the state voted “no” compared to just over 20 percent that said “yes”. Experts say the message to come out of Prop 1’s defeat is that voters want the Michigan legislature to get back to work and come up with a solution to fix the roads.
