League CEO Dan Gilmartin has signed on with MSHDA’s CEO Scott Woosley in a letter to Michigan’s Congressional delegation regarding the critical importance of keeping municipal bonds tax exempt as Congress debates federal tax reform. The letter (attached) was distributed from Governor Snyder’s Washington DC Office last week. This is the League’s latest effort to impress upon Congress how essential it is that they keep the tax exempt status in place as Congress consideres overhauling tax policy. Michigan is in a unique position as we have both the Chairman (Rep. Camp - R) and ranking member (Rep. Levin – D) on the House Ways and Means Committee, which is leading the effort in the House. If you have not done so yet, please take the time to contact your Congressional leaders by clicking here. A sample letter is attached in addition to a report on the issue.
