link: Gov backs gas tax change 

LANSING -- Gov. Jennifer Granholm Wednesday ramped up her support for changing the state gasoline tax from a flat 19 cents a gallon to a proportional rate that would raise more money for road repairs as gas prices rose. 

Granholm, speaking to reporters, said Michigan's roads "are the pits." 

"We have no long-term funding source to make sure the roads are smooth," she said. 

"What we want to do is take the tax that is right now a flat tax and transform it into a percentage tax."
