SBAM in the News Opposing Tax Hikes

February 12, 2010

SBAM was prominent in the news media today as a leader in opposing Gov. Granholm’s proposed tax hikes:

From the Detroit Free Press: “The sales tax on services is one we can’t accept,” said Rob Fowler, CEO of the Small Business Association of Michigan. “The state needs new revenues, but the way to get them is a growing economy.”

From The Detroit News: “We think the state has to live within its means,” said Rob Fowler, president and CEO of the Small Business Association of Michigan. He noted that many of the association’s members — from landscaping companies to hair salons — would certainly be affected by the service tax.”
