Morey Fiscal Policy Initiative

The Morey Fiscal Policy Initiative is dedicated to producing high quality research and timely analysis of fiscal policy issues in Michigan. Built on four policy pillars — budget, tax, economic development and privatization — the Initiative educates decision makers about the importance of making sound policy choices for a free society.

This work would not be possible without our generous donors. For information about the Mackinac Center and our benefits please visit our membership page.
