LANSING (Detroit Free Press) - Gov. Rick Snyder says he will put forward a specific plan to pay for improvements to the state's crumbling roads and bridges in his State of the State address Jan. 16.

Snyder last year identified the need for $1.4 billion a year in additional road funding but didn't back a specific plan for raising that money.

At a bill-signing in Lansing today, Snyder said he would come out with a specific plan in his State of the State address.

Increases to the gasoline tax and diverting money from the state sales tax are among the ideas that have been discussed.
