Film incentive may go away
Advertisements [?]
"Michigan's film tax credit that has lured Hollywood movie producers to the state may soon be no more.

WWJ Lansing Bureau Chief Tim Skubick reports there are "very, very delicate" negotiations going on in Lansing over the credits.

Live on WWJ Monday morning, Skubick reported Republicans want to eliminate or downsize the tax credit. He says the incentive may be popular with the public, but the GOP says it's been a money-loser for Michigan. "

The GOP also wants to get rid of the Earned Income Tax Credit. WTF!!! The Republicans are determined to drive the final nail into Michigan's coffin. I can't believe they are so determined to destroy Michigan just to win in 2010.

Granholm better be gearing up for a fight because I will be pretty angry if the film incentives are even reduced. I don't care in the government goes into a shut-down for 6 months...the film and earned income tax credits need to be protected. I'm one of those people who would love to work in the entertainment industry and the film incentives have made my desire to stay in the state even stronger. The film incentives are one of the bright spots for Michigan and if they go away, I may pack it in too and leave the state.
