The debate about how much money to put into Michigan's tax credit program for films and movies is escalating.
Republican Gov. Rick Snyder wants to end many tax exemptions and would cap Michigan's film incentive program at $25 million. There currently is no cap on the film credit program.
Republicans on a House subcommittee approved a bill Wednesday that would eliminate the $25 million that Snyder proposed setting aside for the film credits.
Republican Rep. Earl Poleski of Jackson says debate on the film credit will continue as the budget proposal for the fiscal year that starts in October advances in the Legislature.
Advocates of Michigan's film credit already were upset with Snyder's proposed limits on the program. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
