2011 Senate Bill 855: Give particular firm $50 million state electric car subsidy (Senate Roll Call 763)
facebook  twitter 

Passed 30 to 5 in the Senate on December 8, 2011, to authorize giving a $50 million state subsidy to a firm called “Townsend Ventures,” which says it wants to use the former Ford Motors Wixom plant to make systems related to electric car batteries. If enacted, this would be the second time the legislature has authorized a large cash subsidy for an outfit wanting to use this closed plant; the first deal fell through (see 2009 Senate Bill 777).
