A recent report by the Citizens Research Council found that 65 counties (78%) increased taxes from 2004 to 2020, several by 2 or more mills. With counties relying so much on such elections to address their funding issues, this breakout is designed to provide practical information and tips for counties that are considering a millage election in coming years.

Speaker: Larry Horvath, BCHS

The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) is responsible for establishing and maintaining a comprehensive system for state licensing and federal certification to protect the health, safety, and welfare of individuals receiving care and services in or from health care providers.
