As if the people of Michigan don’t have enough to deal with the likes of Betsy DeVos and her School Voucher Schemes . . .

Bloomberg Business week reports that:

Republican Gov. Rick Snyder’s administration on Tuesday attempted to win over some lawmakers who are skeptical of a broad plan that would change Michigan’s business and income tax structure.

Lt. Gov. Brian Calley outlined the proposal for the Senate’s Reforms, Restructuring and Reinventing Committee, saying the plan would help improve the state’s business climate. The tax proposal narrowly passed the Republican-led House last month and could face a stiff test in the GOP-led Senate, with a vote possible as early as this week.

The Republican governor’s plan would cut overall business taxes by roughly $1 billion in the fiscal year starting Oct. 1 and $1.7 billion in the year after that. The key would be adopting a 6 percent corporate income tax while eliminating many types of tax credits and exemptions. Supporters say the plan is designed to help small businesses while making the overall system fairer and more consistent.

Some exemptions on retiree income would end.

QUEEN’S COMMENTS

I went to Michael Moore’s blog to see if I could find any activist related forms to complete on this important Michigan topic, or if there were any rallies planned to raise people’s awareness in Michigan of this important upcoming vote.

If such information is there, I could not find it.
