House Committee Reports Bill Eliminating State Income Tax

A plan to eliminate the state's income tax was voted out of a House committee on Wednesday - House Bill 4001. The first full fiscal year impact of this plan would reduce the state's General Fund by over $1.1 billion, or roughly 10%. The League is actively opposed to this proposal as it could jeopardize the essential services that Michigan citizens rely on, such as police and fire protection, schools, and roads. We need your help to oppose this bill! Please contact your State Representative today and let them know of your concerns about how such a drastic reduction in state revenues will impact the residents and services in your community.
