LANSING―State Sen. Darwin Booher, R-Evart, issued the following statement Thursday after the Michigan Senate approved Gov. Rick Snyder’s tax reform plan:
“The status quo isn’t working. Our current system failed to energize Michigan’s economy, create jobs for our residents or give the state the stability needed to support critical priorities.
“This reform makes major changes in the way we do business. By replacing the job-killing Michigan Business Tax, we are improving the state’s business climate from 30th to 16th in the nation – making our state competitive in attracting new investment and job creation.
“Most importantly, this tax reform lays the foundation for Michigan’s economic recovery and long-term job creation. I believe these important changes are the best plan to restore hope for future generations and put Michigan workers back to work.”
