This time last year, there was no state budget in place, Michigan had the 48th worst tax climate for business and even basic legislation like removing barriers to local service sharing couldn’t get passed.
Today, a structurally balanced budget has been adopted, we’re going to have about the 20th best tax climate for business and more legislation has been passed to streamline Michigan government than in almost fifty years!
Could this be why the mood of business owners toward Michigan is so upbeat? Could it also be why we’re starting to see an up-tick in hiring and job openings?
Fixing the basics and getting competitive is turning Michigan around!
