My two cents: let's add another two cents to help fund mass transit capital projects and operating expenses in the state.

Drivers could be asked to pay more per gallon at the gas pump to fund
cleanup of little-known fuel spills occurring underground all over the
state.

More than 7,000 leaking underground storage tank sites statewide -
including 414 in Ingham, Eaton and Clinton counties - are contaminating
the ground and water sources almost 20 years after federal laws were
passed to clean them up.

The state's goal is 600 cleanups a year, but only 265 were completed
during the past year because there wasn't enough money.
