Michigan Democratic Senator Debbie Stabenow will introduce legislation she says will lure U.S. companies who’ve moved their operations overseas back home.
Stabenow visited Lansing Community College’s west campus to announce the “Bring Jobs Home Act.” The measure would end tax loopholes that encourage companies to leave the country, and offer a tax credit to cover 20 percent of their cost to resume operations in the U.S. Stabenow says the tax code needs to be modified to keep workers from paying for their own companies’ move.
One of this year’s Michigan Notable Books is InStitches, the memoir of Doctor Anthony Youn. He’s a graduate of Michigan State University’s College of Human Medicine with a plastic surgery practice in Troy.
Youn grew up in Greenville, Michigan, the son of Korean parents in an otherwise all-white town.
In Stitches takes readers from his childhood through medical school and into his medical practice. Along with his book, he’s gotten attention for making numerous appearances on national TV shows.
