Introduced by Rep. Ed Clemente (D) on October 27, 2009 To authorize renaissance zone tax breaks for some and perhaps all of the electric car battery development companies and similar ventures that have been the beneficiaries of very large cash subsidies from the state, and possibly a number of other companies. A plant in Holland planned by the Korean manufacturer LG Chem would get the proposed renaissance zone tax breaks, and also a biodiesel plant located in Adrian. Official Text and Analysis.
Referred to the House New Economy And Quality Of Life Committee on October 27, 2009
Reported in the House on November 4, 2009 Without amendment and with the recommendation that the bill pass.
Amendment offered by Rep. Tom McMillin (R) on December 8, 2009 To tie-bar the bill to Senate Bill 945, meaning this bill cannot become law unless that one does also. SB 945 would authorize county, city, township, village, or school district “right to work zones,” where, within the boundaries of the community, employers would be prohibited from compelling an employee or prospective employee to join or financially support a union as a condition of employment.
The amendment failed by voice vote in the House on December 8, 2009
Received in the House on April 29, 2010 To grant renaissance zone tax breaks for some of the electric car battery development companies and similar ventures that have already been granted very large cash subsidies from the state. A plant in Holland planned by the Korean manufacturer LG Chem would get the proposed tax breaks, and also a biodiesel plant in Adrian.
