Gov. Jennifer Granholm has endorsed taxes on income and services to resolve the state's fiscal crisis.

Granholm says public employee health care and pension benefits need reform to cut costs.

She called on lawmakers to put partisanship aside to plug a one-point-eight billion hole in next year's budget and find a new business tax. She says the legislature should stay in session until deals are struck.

Granholm spoke today to business, political and civic leaders at the Detroit Regional Chamber's annual Mackinac Policy Conference. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
