House Speaker Andy Dillon (D-Redford Twp.) told reporters his chamber will vote on an income tax proposal Thursday night.

Beginning last Friday, the House voted on a plan to increase the state's personal income tax from 3.9 percent to 4.6 percent. After several votes, the plan never got enough support to pass.

No Republicans voted for it. Some Democrats never registered a vote.

Since then, Senate Republicans put forth a plan for a 4.3 percent income tax with more than $1 billion in budget cuts.

Now Dillon says he has an income tax plan that could get bi-partisan support in the House.
