Lehman Cited in National Review

Critique of Gov. Snyder's performance

Mackinac Center President Joseph G. Lehman is cited in an article about Gov. Rick Snyder in the upcoming issue of National Review.

The story, which calls Gov. Snyder “The Turnaround Governor,” highlights several of his administration, including eliminating the Michigan Business Tax and signing right-to-work legislation.

It also notes his push for a $1.2 billion gas tax increase as the state showers millions of dollars in corporate welfare on movie makers.

“Ideally, a government this large is plenty big enough to pay for good roads,” Lehman said of the state’s $53 billion budget. “We’re facing gas-tax increases now because lawmakers irresponsibly spent money on other things while the roads crumbled.”
