The Good Jobs for Michigan program has proven itself in two short years by attracting major projects creating 8,200 new jobs and generating more than $5 billion of investment, and it unequivocally should be renewed, according to dozens of members of the diverse Good Jobs for Michigan Coalition attending and testifying in support of Senate Bill 492 at today’s Senate Economic and Small Business Development Committee hearing.

They also emphasized the need for Michigan to take advantage of what is expected to be a surge of new investment in the United States, including repatriated jobs, over the next few years.
