Passed 92 to 15 in the House on December 15, 2011, to convert the state film incentive program into straightforward handouts to producers, rather than indirect ones paid through the expiring Michigan Business Tax, with payments of up 32 percent of a producer's Michigan payroll expense, plus some additional subsidies. For 2012, $25 million was appropriated for these subsidies, but nothing in the bill limits how much the Michigan film office can authorize, and once it does the state is obligated to pay. Reportedly the bill sponsor wants to increase the annual payouts to $100 million.

House Roll Call 615 on 2011 Senate Bill 569

Thanks to my Senator, Arlan Meekhof, for taking a stand against these misguided handouts.
Let the markets pick the economic winners, not the guys in Lansing.

Total Rip off of the Tax Paying Public !!!
Governor Snyder and the Republican Caucus snatched money from pensioners, homeowners, the working poor, K-12 schools, university students and their parents, in order to give money to his friends at Business Leaders for Michigan.
