Granholm plan called “repeat of same budget behavior”

September 9, 2009

Statement from Rob Fowler, president and CEO of the Small Business Association of Michigan, in reaction to the state budget plan released today by Gov. Granholm:

“Small business owners are concerned that the plan is mostly a repeat of the same budget behavior we’ve seen in previous years: a mix of cuts, tax hikes and so-called loophole closings. We’ve seen that recipe before and it’s not getting any more palatable. The long term future of this state depends on greater state government efficiency and lower spending. As we noted in a series of statewide press conferences on Sept. 8, we urgently need to significantly reform state government and not continuously apply Band-Aid solutions.”
