New Poll Show MI Residents Think Road Funds Should Come From Budget Cuts
MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) –One-third of the respondents to a new statewide poll say that Michigan should increase funding for roads mostly by cutting the state budget.
The survey was conducted by Lansing-based EPIC MRA. While 33 percent of the respondents say the road funding should be increased mostly or only by budget cuts, 21 percent say it should be mostly or only by tax increases. And while legislators have not decided yet just how new road revenue should be raised, at least some of the electorate are in the same boat.
Twenty-two percent of those surveyed either are undecided, or have refused to answer. The survey was conducted last week. It has a margin of error of plus or minus four percentage points.
