Michigan looks at upping the ante

A year ago, Michigan tried luring moviemakers to the state by giving them hefty tax rebates. But it lost its competitive edge when other states started offering even better deals.

Now, state lawmakers and Gov. Jennifer Granholm are looking at increasing the size of the rebates and adding other incentives to leapfrog Michigan ahead of states such as Louisiana, New Mexico and Connecticut.

Michigan offers a tax rebate of up to 20 percent to production companies that shoot movies, TV shows and commercials in the state. But that no longer has the bling it once did, film industry insiders say.
