Michigan Senate passes road funding bill

Keeping my promise to "expect updates on this story as they develop" that I first made in Road funding bill passes Michigan House committee and repeated in Road funding bill passes Michigan House, I'm sharing the latest on the saga of funding Michigan's roads.  First, the short version from Fox 47: Senate Passes Complicated Roads Plan.

We're going to need a road map to follow the road funding plan the state senate passed Wednesday
WOOD-TV attempts to provide that road map in its more detailed report MI Senate passes roads plan with gas tax hike.

The Republican-led Senate on Wednesday approved a $1.5 billion plan to improve deteriorating Michigan roads by raising fuel taxes and redirecting money from elsewhere in the budget.
Next, back to the Michigan House in two weeks.  Looks like it will be a long summer before this issue is resolved.
