Legislation Protects Food from Being Taxed

Sep 22, 2017

This week legislation was introduced in the House and Senate prohibiting local units of government from imposing an excise tax on the production, distribution, and sale of food.

In the House, Representative Rob VerHeulen (R-Walker) stated that he introduced his legislation after seeing how local taxes of this nature have caused harm to grocery stores, food production, and employment in other states where such taxes have been imposed.  His bill was referred to the House Michigan Competitiveness Committee.

In the Senate, Senator Peter MacGregor (R-Rockford) introduced similar legislation.  His bill was referred to the Senate Michigan Competitiveness Committee.
