LANSING, Mich. – Gov. Rick Snyder made the following statement regarding today’s passage of the Good Jobs legislation package:

“Michigan has made a tremendous economic comeback in the past six years, and passage of this legislation sends the signal that we are pressing forward to ensure the strongest possible future.

“Where before we were complacent and our economy centered around the Michigan Business Tax and a broken tax code, including an overabundance of tax credits, we are now enacting forward-thinking policies that make us more competitive for new jobs and industries in a fiscally responsible fashion. We are ensuring a future economy that is diversified and will stand on solid footing, with new jobs for Michiganders for the foreseeable future.”
