Let It Rip: Mileage fee to fund road repairs

Posted: Updated:
Part 1: Raising the Mich. minimum wage

As fast food workers across the country demand a minimum wage of $15 an hour, lawmakers in Lansing struck a deal for much less. The Michigan Senate has agreed to raise the minimum wage to $9.20 an hour. Some say the increase is not enough. Other say the Republicans sold out.

On the panel:

Sen. Bert Johnson, (D) 2nd District
Sen. Morris Hood III, (D) 3rd District
Lee Gaddies, Raise Michigan Coalition
Rocky Raczkowski, Michigan GOP

Part 2: Mileage fee to fund road repairs

Is this the right way to fund road repairs?

On the panel:

Sen. Bert Johnson, (D) 2nd District
Sen. Morris Hood III, (D) 3rd District
Rep. Tom McMillin, (R) 45th District
Henry Payne, 'Detroit News' auto critic
FOX 2 legal analyst Charlie Langton
