2009 Senate Bill 319: Expand electric car manufacture subsidies

Public Act 6 of 2009

Introduced by Sen. John Pappageorge (R) on March 3, 2009 To expand from one to three the number of refundable, $100 million, capital investment Michigan Business Tax credit agreements that could be entered into with makers of plug-in traction battery packs used in electric cars, which were authorized by a 2008 law. That law authorized additional credits for research and development expenses, with total subsidies estimated at $335 million over seven years. This bill would authorize an additional $200 million in subsidies. “Refundable” means that the state will send a manufacturer a check for the amount that the credit exceeds the firm’s tax liability.   Official Text and Analysis.
