Congressman Bill Huizenga, R-Zeeland, who as a state legislator supported Michigan’s film subsidy program, cited research by Mackinac Center analysts as one reason he now says he “won’t second guess” plans to roll back the program, according to WZZM-TV13 in Grand Rapids.

“A Michigan State University study says it brings money into Michigan,” Huizenga said. “But the Mackinac Center says no, it costs. So there are questions that hang out there.”

The congressman was referring to this policy brief written by Michael LaFaive, director of the Center’s Morey Fiscal Policy Initiative, which refuted MSU’s claims.
