'Pure Michigan' In Line For $10M Funding Boost 2-10-2011

LANSING, Mich.A bill that would transfer an additional $10 million into the state's Pure Michigan tourism advertising campaign has cleared a key hurdle.
The Michigan House approved the measure Thursday by a 95-13 vote. The bill now goes to the Senate.
The bill allows a total of $20 million to go into the Pure Michigan promotion from the state's 21st Century Jobs Fund. That would be an increase from the currently scheduled $10 million.
Supporters of the Pure Michigan campaign say the latest proposed increase would boost overall funding for the program to $25 million as requested by Gov. Rick Snyder.
The Pure Michigan campaign has received positive reviews from lawmakers but they haven't agreed on a steady, permanent funding source.
The funding legislation is House Bill 4160.
