LANSING, MICH – Representative Donni Steele (R-Orion) on Thursday voted in favor of a package of tax cuts that aim to deliver relief to small businesses from unnecessary burdensome government regulations as well increase oversight on the governor’s corporate giveaways.
“Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, and they should be allowed to operate without unnecessary government restrictions,” said Rep. Steele. “These restrictions make it more expensive for them and as result more expensive for all of us. Small businesses have struggled in the last two years and this is the type of relief they should be seeing out of Lansing. I’m proud to have helped delivered immediate and lasting relief.”
House Bills 4039, 4137, and 4253 will clarify Michigan law and exempt delivery and installation services from sales and use taxes if the charges are listed separately from the product on an invoice. HBs 4054 and 4055 will also clarify that sales and use taxes do not apply to industrial processing equipment used on aggregate materials, such as sand, gravel, crushed stone, and recycled asphalt.
“On Sunshine Week, the House of Representatives also voted to increase oversight and accountability when it comes to the governor’s corporate handouts” added Rep. Steele. “This is something both parties clearly favor and that’s why the bill received overwhelming bipartisan support.”
The measures passed the House of Representatives with overwhelming bipartisan support, and now head to the Senate for further consideration.
Rep. Donni Steele (R-Orion) issued a statement after voting against a package of bills that would establish extreme protection orders, also known as “red flag laws” in Michigan.
