Pure Michigan funding could be restored

There’s hope that Michigan’s tourism campaign, Pure Michigan, may yet be funded this year. Pure Michigan’s Dave Lorenz expects a bill calling for funding to be introduced it
in the next week or so. The money was cut from a budget worked out between legislative leaders and the Governor last year. Lorenz says he had proposed $37.5 million for Pure Michigan this year, but says they’ll do the best they can with whatever they receive. Supporters pushing for state funds say hundreds of millions of dollars comes in to the state from sales tax paid by people vacationing in Michigan.
