Special Olympics tax check-off signed into law
LANSING¬- State Sen. Rick Jones, R-Grand Ledge, (left) joined Gov. Rick Snyder at the Capitol on Tuesday as he signed two bills into law.
Public Act 155 of 2012, sponsored by Jones, and PA 154 of 2012, sponsored by state Rep. Kevin Cotter, R- Mt. Pleasant, create a check-off box on state income tax returns that would allow taxpayers to easily donate money to help fund Special Olympics Michigan athletes.
“As a long-time chaperone to Special Olympics Michigan, I know how important this program is to the athletes and their families,” Jones said. “This legislation will make it easier for people to voluntarily donate to this great organization.”
