Just past Michigan's August primary, IPPSR's State of the State Podcast reviews gubernatorial campaigns, voter demographics and how Michigan may handle -- or not -- another recession.
In March 2017, the Michigan House of Representatives narrowly voted down a proposal to reduce the income tax. But the issue of tax cuts continues to be discussed, both at the state and federal level. To gauge citizen opinions about tax cuts, MSU’s State of the State Survey asked Michigan residents questions about the proposed tax cut in summer 2017.
The survey indicated that when residents learn who is poised to benefit most from a tax reduction — the wealthy — their support for the cut fell significantly, compared to those who didn't receive that information.
