WZZM Newsreader – Republican candidate for governor, Dick Devos is outlining some broad ideas for reigniting the Michigan economy. Devos spoke today to the Detroit Economic Club. He backed a pay-for-performance wage for state worker improvements. He renewed his call for replacing Single Business Tax with a bigger corporate tax, and Devos called for cuts in state spending, which he says will be replaced with tax revenue from business growth.
