Local Democrat sees Tax Cut Proposal as Election Year Ploy
As Michigan's Republican legislators talk about using a state budget surplus for an income tax cut, one local State Representative says she doesn't support the idea.
52nd District Democrat Gretchen Driskell says she does not support a tax cut. She says she doesn't see any reason to cut taxes at this point.
Driskell says Michigan's system for collecting revenue needs to be fixed before a tax cut in instituted.
She says she thinks the tax cut proposal is more of an election year idea, and the surplus would be better used toward education.
