Michigan House approves bill to help build Ilitch's downtown Detroit development

Source: WDIV

The Michigan House approved a bill Thursday which will allow Mike Ilitch, owner of the Detroit Tigers and Red Wings, to bring a new $650 million development project to downtown Detroit.

Ilitch's proposal includes retail, shopping, housing and a new events center which would serve as a new arena for the Red Wings. The bill gives the Ilitch Organization a leg up on the proposal.

...

Christopher Ilitch, president and CEO of Ilitch Holdings, Inc, also released this statement on Thursday:

"The Ilitch organization would like to thank the Michigan State Legislature for passing HB 5463 today. In particular, we would like to thank the bill sponsor, Representative John Walsh (R-Livonia), Speaker of the House Jase Bolger (R-Marshall) and Majority Leader Randy Richardville (R-Monroe) for their efforts in passing this legislation that will have a significant impact on the creation of a catalytic economic development in downtown Detroit that all Michiganders can be proud. We look forward to continuing our work with the public sector to make this public private partnership a reality."

After two years of cuts to education and revenue sharing, they are making taxpayers foot the bill for something that these rich people could easily afford.

This all comes in the same week that they passed Wrong-to-Work, an emergency manager law (to replace the one voters rejected), legislation to restrict abortion, and legislation to allow concealed weapons in schools, stadiums, and bars.

The 96th Legislature could be the worst in the history of the state.

8. I heard Michael Moore say

that this is a Democratic family.
Moore was recommending that one of the Ilitch family should run for governor in 2014 against the current governor.

3. big money

always gets what it wants while us in the trenches have to slug it out for every penny. I am so sick of the in your face disparity. Yet who in the fuck ever said life had to be fair, cause it ain't. Fuck illitch, snyder and the rest. They are very ugly human beings with no souls or conscience. This week proves everything I have ever explained to rethug voters and I am glad they are getting the same as we who did not vote for these clowns, yet even getting voted out 2014 means nothing. The damage is done. And I repeat Michiganians voted these clowns in by believing that synder would stick to his "not on my agenda" lie. When will the voters of this state realize that the worst Democratic administration is light years better than any g - d rethug administration.

5. Socialize the cost privatize the profits

Hey,
The American free enterprise system at work, socialize the costs and privatize the profits. 38% of the baseball stadium the team he owns was paid for by taxpayers. And so it goes.

Peace
