LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Anti-tax groups and tea party supporters are getting ready to hold their annual taxpayer rally at the Michigan Capitol.
Americans for Prosperity-Michigan is hosting the Thursday rally, which it estimates will draw hundreds of people.
Among the speakers are potential presidential candidate Herman Cain, author and commentator Dick Morris, Secretary of State Ruth Johnson and Attorney General Bill Schuette.
The rally comes a day after more than 5,000 people jammed the Capitol lawn to protest policies they say will raise taxes on seniors and individuals while giving businesses a substantial tax break.
A release from Americans for Prosperity-Michigan says its members will applaud many of Gov. Rick Snyder's policies to cut spending. But they oppose his plan to back the New International Trade Crossing between Detroit and Canada.
