Lansing - The Republican-controlled state House wants to eliminate tax incentives for making movies in Michigan so the money can be shifted to repairing roads. The House on Tuesday stripped $25 million in tax money it planned to set aside for the film industry as well as $25 million for economic development through the Strategic Fund, shifting it to road funding.
