We need to find a better way to fund essential government services. We need to overhaul our tax structure, not merely change it by moving numbers around as we did with the Michigan Business Tax. We are not competitive with surrounding states because of our complicated business tax structure. It is expensive to do business in Michigan when we look at all the taxes and fees a business must pay. It needs to be simpler and easier to do business here. I will work to lower the tax burden on all of us.
