The Grand Rapids Press and WOOD-TV are reporting that Michigan Film Office Director Janet Lockwood agreed with Mackinac Center analysts that a proposed movie studio seeking state subsidies is questionable.

Michigan Capitol Confidential broke the story after an e-mail from Lockwood, obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, quoted her saying "So disappointing, it looked so promising. But it's not. This time I am agreeing with the Mac Center." Lockwood was referring to Hangar42, about which issues were raised after a months-long Mackinac Center investigation.
