Lehman in Reuters: 'Detroit Needs a Game Changer'

The solution? Eliminate city income tax

Mackinac Center President Joseph G. Lehman was cited in a Reuters story today explaining why the state of Michigan should not bail out Detroit.

“Detroit needs a game changer,” Lehman suggested, rather than more state aid. He pointed to the elimination of the city income tax as one preferred option, something Fiscal Policy Director Michael LaFaive suggested in this Detroit News Op-Ed more than seven years ago.
