Michigan State University Offering East Lansing Cash To Forget City Income Tax Issue

WLNS.com reports that Michigan State university and the City of East Lansing have been at bay over a ballot proposal that would ask city voters to approve a city income tax.

Apparently, MSU really doesn’t want voters to have a chance to say yes, and cost its employees a portion of their paychecks. MSU President Lou Anna K. Simon reportedly sent an e-mail to East Lansing Mayor Mark Meadows, and offered the city $2 million a year for 5 years to not put forth the ballot proposal to residents.

According to e-mails between Meadows and Simon that you can read here from the WLNS report, he’s looking for a lot more money to keep the issue off of November’s ballot.

East Lansing is proposing the city income tax to chip away at a $200 million deficit.
