Wow. Looks like Andy did it.
From the Freep-
The Michigan House tonight voted 57-52 to raise the state income tax from 3.9% to 4.35%, a keystone to an overall budget agreement that would avert a state government shutdown on Monday.
The tax increase passed the House on 57-52 vote with only two Republican voting for it - Rep. Chris Ward, R-Brighton, and Rep. Ed Gaffney, R-Grosse Pointe. Gaffney was lobbied in person on the House floor by Gov. Jennifer Granholm. Three Democrats voted no: Lisa Wojno of Warren, Mike Simpson of Liberty Township near Jackson and Mike Griffin of Jackson.
The vote kicked the bill to the Senate, with little more than an hour before a government shutdown would take effect.
One hour to go....
