Road budget doesn't increase, to Snyder's dismay

Lead in text: 
A Michigan House committee passed the state transportation budget without the extra $1.2 billion Governor Rick Snyder has been pushing for to make road repairs and improvements.
Lansing - A House committee on Tuesday passed a $3.4 billion transportation budget that is $1.2 billion less than Gov. Rick Snyder wanted to fix the state's roadways. The House Appropriations transportation subcommittee's bill does not include the $1.2 billion in new revenue Snyder is seeking because the Legislature has so far been unable to agree on whose tax bills should increase to pay for road repairs.
