State Lawmakers Vote To End Michigan’s Film Incentives Program
State lawmakers voted Thursday to end Michigan’s film incentives program.
The Senate voted 24-13 to stop the state from issuing new incentives.
The House sent the bill to Governor Snyder Thursday afternoon.
Republican leadership says it will honor existing commitments while winding down the program.
Critics say spending millions of taxpayer dollars on movie-making is unjustified.
While supporters says incentives have had a positive economic impact.
