What should Michigan do with $971M surplus? Not everyone is on board with income tax cut

What should Michigan do with $971M surplus? Not everyone is on board with income tax cut

Where is this nearly $1B surplus in Michigan?

It is not on the tables of Bridge Card users.

It is not in Detroit libraries, reopening closed branches and updating slow Internet service.

It is not in the DDOT mechanic shop, repairing buses to help the bus shortage.

It is not new safety gear on the backs of our city firefighters, nor is it fixing their rigs so they actually have working towers to get people down every time.

It’s nowhere in our 911 response infrastructure.

I suspect it’s nowhere to be found anywhere in any of Michigan’s emergency managed cities.

Explain to me again how there’s no money to pay pensions unless we liquidate our art museum?
