Don't touch the "Earned Income Tax Credit"

That message today came from a group opposing a house bill that would eliminate the credit and put the money toward fixing the roads.

The measure has support among many republicans, eliminating it would save about $115 million a year.

The head of the non-profit Michigan's Children says getting rid of the benefit would hurt families more than it would help the roads.

The earned income tax credit helped 780-thousand low-income workers last year, according to the state.
