METRO DETROIT — After months of tussling with partisan plans for fixing the state’s troubled roads, Michigan lawmakers moved swiftly on Election Day to approve a package of bills that supporters claim will raise $1.2 billion annually for repairs.

Proponents of the plan, which cleared the Michigan Senate and House of Representatives on Nov. 3, mostly along party lines, say it will fund repairs through $600 million in increased fuel taxes and vehicle registration fees, tempered with tax credits and $600 million in unspecified cuts to the state’s general fund.

CENTER LINE — Center Line voters re-elected two City Council incumbents Nov. 3, but one of them, Bob Binson, said he’d elect to decline a new four-year council term to stay on in the appointed position of mayor.

He was the top vote-getter in the council election with 47.4 percent of the vote in the race for two seats, and as a result, he said he would exercise his option to remain in the appointed position as mayor.
