Default Michigan gov dashboard

In the State of the State address, Snyder mentioned this dashboard to view the progress of michigan.

http://www.michigan.gov/accountability/

I liked Snyder's speech last night and really hopes he follows through with most of his points.

speech was good. I liked his proposal of getting rid of the MI business tax and replacing it with a 6% across the board tax.

Best part of the speech in my opinion. This would be great for business owners. I am skeptical as to if it will happen.
I thought the speech was okay-kind of typical with the basic rah,rah. I hate all the standing ovations that politicians get. We will see if he keeps his word!
BTW - I voted for him.

At frist the speech started of typical political bullshit generic rah rah bullshit. But later he actually outlined some plans and gave some statistics on why he was going that way.

I liked it overall.

some cliffs notes i remember

1)Pure Michigan has a 25 million dollar budget, research shows 2:1 return on this marketing
2)New bridge from detroit to canada that will not cost ANY taxpayer dollars to build
3)wants to really give breaks to business that start/expand in Mi (I don't remember specifics)
4)The dashboard is his progress report
5) wants to get immigrants with higher education degrees in MI.
6) will post a 2 year state budget. Legally required to post 1 year but will post a 2 year so people know what to expect.

I was taking care of my fussy infant daughter while this was on so I may have missed some key points.

I love the dashboard! I look at the type of data at a micro level all the time comparing statistics and projections in the municipality that I work for with those of competing municipalities. We produce a lot of the reports with the same stuff as the dashboard but this is such a great way to display it quickly. Hopefully the information on the State's website will be updated monthly (or quarterly) whenever the new data is released from the state or federal agencies.

This is basically what I suggested to one of our IT folks that we should be doing on our website. Not so much as a progress report type tool but to aid in economic development and basic research.

The dashboard basically takes the most asked for pieces of economic or demographic statistics and compiles them all into one easy to find spot. Very cool!
