Passed 35 to 3 in the Senate on June 20, 2007, to allow the convention and tourism bureaus in Kent County and Lansing to levy a 2 percent hotel and motel rooms tax to support marketing and promotion programs. This would be on top of existing marketing levies. A referendum of lodging providers would be required if requested by least 40 percent of the owners of "transient facilities" subject to the tax. Providers would have one vote for each room in their facility.
