The substitute passed by voice vote in the Senate on December 13, 2007
To increase the maximum amount of government pension income that is exempt under the state income tax, and index this to inflation.

The bill would also not allow a person to deduct from state income tax the amount of a contribution to several Michigan education savings plan accounts, rather than just one, and would increase the cap on the amount of education plan contributions that a senior citizen may deduct. See House Bill 5138.
Received in the House on December 13, 2007
To concur with the Senate-passed version of the bill, which also increased the maximum amount of government pension income that is exempt under the state income tax, and indexed this to inflation.
Signed by Gov. Jennifer Granholm on December 20, 2007
