Q1. Local Revenue Sharing

QUESTION: State revenue sharing accounts for 18-19% of Detroit’s total General Fund revenues (compared to 27-28% for local income taxes and 16-17% for wagering taxes). In light of recent efforts by the state legislature to cut state income taxes, how would you protect and restore state revenue sharing to local governments?

ANSWER: No Response

Q2. Education Reform

Bridge Magazine’s overview of twelve recent education reports yielded four common themes for improving public education outcomes in Michigan: 1. Differential spending for students with different needs (i.e. it costs more to educate low-income students who come into kindergarten already behind in reading skills), 2. More investment in teacher training, 3. More and better early childhood education for ages 0-4, and 4. Better college/career preparation. How will you, as Governor, support evidence-backed reforms for public education in Michigan?

ANSWER: No Response

Q3. Auto Insurance

Michigan has the highest auto insurance rates in the nation, and Detroit has the highest rates in the state. A few different reforms have been working through the state legislature to address high auto insurance premiums. Reform ideas include cracking down on fraud, establishing tiers of coverage for Personal Injury Protection, introducing medical fee schedules, prohibiting non-driving factors, and eliminating no fault. How will you, as Governor, support auto insurance reform to lower premiums for Michigan drivers?
