Passed 102 to 6 in the House on May 7, 2009, to authorize a $100 million refundable Michigan Business Tax credit and other subsidies that would go to a subsidiary of the Korea-based LG Chem battery company for a plant in Michigan. The bill increases and adds a fourth beneficiary for the subsidies authorized by a 2008 law, further expanded by 2009 law. The 2008 law authorized various subsidies estimated at $335 million over seven years. This bill would add an additional $145 million to that. “Refundable” means that the state will send a manufacturer a check for the amount that the credit exceeds the firm’s tax liability.

House Roll Call 219 on 2009 Senate Bill 466
On the other hand, shame on my senator, Wayne Kuipers for sponsoring this bill in the senate! That's not the kind of leadership we need in Michigan, let along be sending to the US House. He certainly won't be getting my vote in the August primary, and I'll be telling people why.
Thanks to Agema (my rep), Amash, Meekhof, and the rest of the principled conservatives who stood up against this thing.
This isn't the way to do business in Michigan. Why throw money at outside companies to get them to locate here, while taxing existing business to the point of extinction?
Level the playing field; make it fair and make it competitive.
The market as of late has not "move thing properly" very well.
Clearly because, It takes a FREE MARKET to move things properly.
NOT our current POLITICAL (ie Fascist) Market
