2017 Senate Bill 111

Senate Roll Call 174: Passed

To authorize giving ongoing cash subsidies to Detroit developer Dan Gilbert and possibly other developers and business owners selected by state and local political appointees. Gilbert and any others would get cash subsidies for up to 20 years based on the income tax paid by their employees and tenants. This would mean less money available for other state services (or for broad-based tax cuts). This is part of a package comprised of Senate Bills 111 to 115; see also Senate Bills 242 and 243.
