Michigan Tea Party Scorecard - Corporate Welfare Final 2012

Created by rhamman

This scorecard includes only those bills from the Tea Party Scorecard that concern corporate welfare. This highlights the extremely poor record of lawmakers on this issue - low scores are the norm, zeros are very common. This scorecard is a public service of Independents for Responsible Government www.I4RG.com YTD version for 2012 updated 1/21/13 Comments to scorecard@i4rg.com
