LANSING, MI - The Michigan Chamber of Commerce, a leading business group with deep pockets and roughly 6,700 members, announced Monday that it will remain neutral on the state's May 5 road and sales tax proposal.
State Representative Aaron Miller says he can support a tax increase as part of a comprehensive package for road funding. But he says lawmakers and the Snyder administration can do better than the plan which includes an increase in the state sales tax.
