John Hood at National Review Online yesterday called Michigan the "epicenter of the fiscal earthquake," referring to the overspending crisis created by Gov. Jennifer Granholm and the Legislature.

Hood said there are alternatives to using tax increases and more federal bailout money to solve Michigan's budget problems, and that Michael LaFaive, director of the Center's Morey Fiscal Policy Initiative, "has plenty of ideas." Hood also linked to LaFaive's bio, which gives access to every article, commentary and study LaFaive has authored during his time with the Center.
