Give film industry tax credit a chance to grow state jobs

BY MIKE BINDER • Detroit Free Press • June 18, 2008

For Michigan to turn away from its newly enacted tax credit for film making would, quite simply, be one of the most sorrowful, spiritless, wrongheaded things a state government could possibly do.

This new law is just a few months old and already some of the legislators who voted for it are talking about repealing it or capping the tax breaks. That says more about the lawmaker than the law. Either they didn't understand what they were doing or don't have enough faith in their decision to stand behind it and let it work.
