Michigan Governor Rick Snyder kills the Avengers

On Absolute Michigan today I wrote a feature on Michigan Governor Rick Snyder’s baffling budget that kills the Michigan Film Incentive. Once again, as Mitch Albom so aptly explains, Michigan has gone out, run 1/2 a block and wondered why we haven’t won the marathon.

Either way, he kills the future of the film/TV/video game industry here. With such a low cap, few new projects will come. Many have pulled out in the last few days. Studios just washed millions down the drain. Folks who moved here to be part of a growing industry will leave again.

And we look like fools. Imagine a state that yells, “Come on in!”, leads the nation in a program — then three years later shuts it down. Would you want to do business here?

Sometimes I really feel we are one of the nation’s stupidest states. Click here to read more, check out Rick is Wrong and watch this video from Mitch Albom explaining the inexplicable.
