Back to What does your August 2010 vote represent?

When the SMART property tax expires in August 2010, you will have a choice.

A "YES" vote means to pay with property taxes without "Operation Bring Back SMART" or other proven methods of protecting state funds and securing federal grants first.

A "NO" vote means the Michigan Department of Transportation is required by law to pay or provide alternatives for the handicapped without more local tax increases. The present tax rate legally prevails.

Please support this cause to improve mass transit

Without financial contributions of cash or checks sent to the name and address above ---

  • A new regional mass transit agreement will likely require large county tax increases without additional state money and continue to reject industry support in favor of more government instead.
  • The state constitution could be changed to allow county sales taxes to pay for mass transit with little or no incentives to make better use of limited tax dollars.
  • Your suburban tax increases could be utilized to operate the Detroit Department of Transportation without adequate state revenue sharing or improvements to meet minimum standards, if state laws are changed.
