Belt tightening must continue across Michigan


Dear Editor,

The New Year brought good news from Lansing; we actually have a surplus in the state budget. After much political wrangling, a short shutdown, spending cuts and a 22 percent surcharge on businesses, we learn that everyone's predictions were wrong. The state has collected $350 million more than it needed and Michigan taxpayers are looking for their change.

Emergency measures that were taken to close the budget gap have proven excessive. The Michigan Business Tax that has just taken effect should be adjusted to account for the additional funds that have flowed into state coffers. Lansing should also write a batch of checks and send back the money it didn't need. And belt tightening should continue across the state.
