The Legislature is once again at odds with the governor. This time, it’s over what to do about the new federal tax law.
But where they disagree is on what to do. The governor wants to essentially find a way to make the federal tax impact neutral at first. So, Michigan taxes would stay the same.
But Speaker of the House Tom Leonard isn’t on board with that plan. He wants to find a way to cut taxes even further right now, rather than keep them the same.
“We’ve got to really hammer out the details and figure out which direction we want to head as a caucus. But certainly I would like to see us go even further.”
Leonard says he expects to have a plan released soon.
