State lawmakers discussed legislation at a House Tax Policy Committee on Tuesday that would allow a fetus of at least 12-weeks to qualify as a dependent for state income tax purposes.

Current state law allows parents to claim a $3,700 tax deduction for a dependent. WWJ Lansing Bureau Chief Tim Skubick says House Bills 5684 and 5685 will extend that tax exemption to expecting parents.



The fetus tax credit, which could cost the state $5 million to $10 million a year in revenue, is currently pending in a house committee.

Does that mean liberals view life as starting at 12 weeks?

I thought the MI legislature was under Repub control. This proposal isn't going anywhere without Repub support. And they view life as starting when somebody says, "Your place or mine?"
