Or, major businesses that invest millions of dollars, like to have a plan in place before spending their hard earned money. A plan that takes time. A plan that is on paper years before breaking ground (Wolverine Power, Unmanned Aircraft Facility, etc.). Now that there is no personal property tax, those plans could be in motion.

Let's stop trying to be cynical and be happy that there are jobs coming back to our great state!

Hiring and development is taking place because of the end of personal property taxes for businesses, even though it hasn't been implemented yet? Typical politician BS.
