LANSING (WKZO) -- The state Senate is considering wiping out the current taxes on gasoline and diesel fuel and replacing them with a tax that would add about 25 cents per gallon by 2018. The Michigan chapter of the National Federation of Independent Business is arguing against the move, aimed at raising more money for fixing roads around the state.

The NFIB's Charlie Owens says the proposal, which was discussed in the Senate Monday, would hurt too many small businesses as gas prices are currently flirting with the four-dollar a gallon mark.
