    Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – State Representative John Kivela and State Senator Tom Casperson are introducing bills targeting the “Dark Store” theory used to lower property taxes.

    Representative Kivela joined the SUNNY Morning Show with Walt & Mike today to talk about his proposed legislation.

    Kivela says the bill is intended to pare back the ability of big box stores to go before the Michigan Tax Tribunal and argue their stores are uniquely laid out and wouldn’t be worth much if they had to close up shop and sell.

    Kivela and Casperson are intending to introduce the measures in their respective chambers this fall.
