Regarding House Plan to Remove Sales Tax on Fuel

Lansing, MI, March 5, 2020 – Chris Wigent, executive director of the Michigan Association of Superintendents & Administrators, today released the following statement regarding the House Plan to Remove Sales Tax on Fuel.

“While we agree that Michigan roads are in need of serious investments, we cannot continually look to the School Aid Fund as the state’s piggy bank. The plan before the House puts enormous pressures on the General Fund and will have dire consequences on school funding and essential state services for years to come. We encourage lawmakers to go back to the drawing board and work toward a solution that actually raises revenues for schools, roads, and essential state services. ‘Holding harmless’ is no longer good enough. Michiganders support raising revenue for schools and key services. It’s time to do the right thing and invest in our future.”
