In Michigan, our legislature is finally, finally putting together a serious long term plan to fix our awful roads. I have harped on this for many years and pleased that we are all finally taking a mature approach. After starving funding for road repairs for more than a decade, it only makes sense that an increase will be needed. And it only makes sense for at least part of that funding to come through higher gas taxes. Well… up until the point when I have to buy gas.

    I’m just going to ignore the issue of long term neglect of basic infrastructure now creating a need for increased taxes and move on to some inspired thinking in the field of long term road solution, check it out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RMhorNKMXVQ

    That is very interesting, Mr Mert. Definitely worth exploring. And apparently the Koch brothers would be against it, so that’s a good sign, too: http://jensorensen.com/2014/05/26/solar-tax-quacks/
