Stateside for Wednesday, February 20th, 2013
Today on Stateside, Michiganders, you have spoken.
A new report is out today about how you think we can move the economy forward.
We'll find out more on today's show, and we'll speak to a former University President who says universities themselves might be contributing to some of the economic crunch they're facing.
But in the first part of our show, we turn to the question of just how much support the state of Michigan should give to the film industry and filmmakers.
Governor Snyder's recent budget proposal contained $25 million in tax credits for film makers. That's a 50 percent cut from the present film credit cap of $50 million, and some lawmakers, including Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville, a fellow Republican, say that is one bad plan that he says will drive the film industry out of Michigan.
