DETROIT, Mich.  – Business Leaders for Michigan (BLM), the state’s business roundtable, today issued the following statement in response to the introduction of Senate Bills 1153, 1154 and 1155:

“This kind of economic development program will help Michigan grow more good paying jobs,” said Doug Rothwell, BLM President & CEO. “It fills a critical void in our economic development toolbox as other states – especially our Great Lakes neighbors Indiana and Ohio – have been using similar programs to attract good paying jobs and investment that should be considering Michigan. Senate Bills 1153, 1154 and 1155, sponsored by Sens. Jim Stamas (R-Midland), Wayne Schmidt (R-Traverse City), and Steve Bieda (D-Warren), will ensure that our state has a vital, but simple and transparent tax incentive tool accessible to all industries that’s been missing and is desperately needed. We applaud the bipartisan leadership from the Senate to move Michigan forward.”
