Priest: calls transit tax a 'faith issue'

ABC affiliate, WZZM13 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, reports on a group of religious leaders coming out in favor of a 31% tax increase to support expanded bus service:

A group of priests, pastors and rabbis says it's almost a religious duty for people of faith to approve a tax increase for expanded bus service in the Grand Rapids area.

If you believe in the Bible, Father Mike Przybysz says, you should vote "yes" for the 31% tax increase The Rapid is requesting.

"The Scriptures, Old Testament, New Testament, say we are supposed to help those in need," says Father Przybysz. "This is a way for us to reach out to those on the fringes of society."
