3. I wish she would just say the real reason...
"It was Gov. Granholm's idea which means I must oppose it."

She stated the cost of the tax incentives but not the benefit. Film production brought in 100 million dollars in revenue last year, compared to the cost Cassis stated ($48 million). Seems to me that simple math would show that the film incentives brought in more than it cost. This doesn't even include the studios that will come in the future and the benefit of having an industry that attracts creative, young people to the area.
