A media roundtable to discuss the newly introduced Good Jobs for Michigan legislation and the critical, burgeoning need for such a tool, according to experts from across the state.

Where:

Michigan must have a more competitive tax incentive tool to create more well-paying jobs in communities statewide and not be left on the sidelines behind other states in attracting large-scale projects.
