"Safe Roads Yes campaign spokesman Roger Martin said a proposal from Prop 1 opponent Rep. Gary Glenn, R-Midland, would slash K-12 school finding $700 million, and one from Sen. Patrick Colbeck, R-Canton, would cut services to autistic children, among others; raid the rainy day fund; and require constitutional changes.
...But U.S. Rep. Justin Amash, R-Grand Rapids, isn't buying the purported benefits of Prop 1. He wants to do away with tax breaks granted to selected businesses through the the Michigan Economic Development Corporation as inducements to bring commerce and jobs to the state. 'Michigan voters should reject any tax increase proposal that doesn't first eliminate film subsidies and corporate welfare,' he tweeted Thursday. 'I'm voting no on May 5.'"
