We would like to express our concern on yet another tax on a service that is already taxed (in some cases) to a point that the addition fees or taxes are more than the original service. In our household we manage our budget based on our income. We don't ask for more income when we spend beyond our means. We are opposed to this Bill 4852!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

C'mon! You say "they should have notified the governor!" Didn't you see the blood sucking wench smiling with glee, like she usually is on the news when she was poised to take yet another stab at Michigan taxpayers and the remaining businesses of Michigan. UNLESS GRANHOLM IS SENT HOME SOON, Michigan may not be able to recover from her inept, incompetent, illogical mismanagement of this state's government.

Hey here's an idea to start to save money in the Michigan budget. Howzabout getting rid of the Michigan taxpayer paid STAFF that her husband Dan Mulhern has, especially that $100,000 plus, administrative assistant (glorified secretary)! What kind of work does she do for that kind of money?
Nobody in this state voted for Mulhern and nobody in this state should have to pay for his perks!
