Granholm Changes Tax Credit Application Process

by

(Lansing, MI)  --  After an embarrassment in which a convicted embezzler won a nine-million-dollar tax abatement, Governor Granholm has made changes to the application process for such tax breaks.  She issued an executive order Tuesday requiring the Michigan Economic Growth Authority to require criminal background checks for those receiving the tax breaks.  The order also reorganizes MEGA.  Among the changes, the state treasurer will serve as chair of the MEGA board and the state budget director will replace the director of the state Department of Transportation as a voting member of the board.
