For Monday, December 1
Leaders To Address Income Tax Freeze Proposal
Budget Crisis Poses
To Public Health, Natural Areas,
At 2:30 p.m. Monday, December 1 in Room 55 at the State Capitol Michigan’s
leading environmental groups will break their silence and offer a new twist
on the controversial proposal by Governor Granholm to freeze a scheduled reduction
in the state’s income tax rate while issuing a warning on the state budget
crisis. As the state’s teachers, K-12 school districts, colleges, and human
service providers line up to advocate for an income tax rate freeze to earmark
support for their programs and services, Michigan’s environmental community
will take a different approach on the issue.

With Michigan facing a $900 million deficit this fiscal year, the Granholm
Administration is proposing to freeze the state income tax rate at 4 percent.
No area has been hit harder by budget cuts over the past three years than
Michigan’s land, air and water quality protection, and programs that protect
drinking water, lakes and wilderness areas. More than $70 million in cuts
have put environmental enforcement into a tailspin that benefits polluters
and threatens the public health.
