The Single Business Tax (SBT) may soon be repealed. It has been criticized as being particularly bad for Michigan's economy. Earlier, the Republicans in the legislature earlier voted to repeal the SBT, but Governor Granholm vetoed that bill.
Now, Oakland County Executive Brooks Patterson has turned in signatures supporting the repeal of the tax. This will allow the legislature to repeal the tax without the governor being able to veto it.
The so-called "people's override" was last used to approve the Human Life Definition Act, a bill to ban partial birth abortion.
