A package of Michigan bills that would ease the financial burden of cleaning up brownfield sites goes to the governor's desk.
Republican Sen. Ken Horn introduced the legislation that would let developers keep a portion of taxes after they redevelop a brownfield site.
The taxes would be collected from businesses and residents moving into the site.
The bills passed the House Thursday after a lukewarm response from some lawmakers, who called it crony capitalism.
The main bill passed 85-22.
