2010 Legislative Agenda

2010 Legislative Agenda
Tuesday, Jan 26, 2010

Two weeks ago, we announced our 2010 Legislative Agenda, which reflects the first phase of legislation necessary to implement the Michigan Turnaround Plan. These policy items begin to implement the first three steps of the Michigan Turnaround Plan – seen as the building blocks for the investment and economic development strategies that follow.

Some of these goals may take longer to achieve, but Business Leaders for Michigan is committed to getting the legislative and policymaking dialogue process underway now.

With Michigan’s 2011 deficit at almost $2 billion and growing through 2014, we believe structural budget reforms, like some of the items in our Legislative Agenda as well as others, must be passed and implemented as soon as possible.  We recognize that some of the needed legislation will draw robust debate, but we must find solutions to these difficult issues if we want to see our state turnaround.  This agenda is a framework. We will support these and other proposed solutions that support the Michigan Turnaround Plan.
