A newly introduced bill in Michigan gives new meaning to the phrase "politically correct economic development." Included in Ed Clemente's introduced House Bill 6242, which would create a new government economic development commission, is a stipulation that members appointed by the governor must "be representative of this state geographically, racially, and with regard to gender."

Michigan favors industries that have been deemed politically correct. The idea behind this bill would require the people recommending incentives to be as well.

And though the bill proposes a "new economy commission," it includes no definition of the "new economy" among its rules for activities and committee membership.
