MI Senate votes to pause state gas taxes from June until September

The Michigan Senate has passed a set of bills to pause state taxes on gasoline from June 15 until Sept. 15.

The pause includes the state’s 6% sales and use tax, along with the 27 cent per gallon fuel tax.

According to lawmakers, the move is estimated to save Michiganders about 50 cents per gallon at the pump.

While the bill package has passed, they still need to pass through the House and Gov. Whitmer's desk before it becomes final.

Beautiful weather in store for Metro Detroit throughout Memorial Day weekend

This year's Memorial Day weekend looks to feature gorgeous weather throughout southeastern Michigan.

On Saturday, Metro Detroiters can expect a high of 74°, and a high of 80° on Sunday.

I hope everyone enjoys their holiday weekend and gets a chance to enjoy Mother Nature's gift!
