We Have a 2023 Winner!

The Center for Economic Accountability selected Michigan's $1.75 billion in planned subsidies for an electric vehicle battery plant operated by a joint venture between Ford Motor Co. and Chinese firm CATL as America's Worst Economic Development Deal of the Year.

Notes the Center: "This award was nailed down for Michigan when a governor's political cronies reportedly pushed out campaign-style mailers and robocalls against average, everyday people [in Marshall] who dared to exercise their fundamental right to ask their elected officials for straight answers to questions."

More about this embarrassing corporate welfare 'award' here.

Note: Consumer enthusiasm for EVs is eh.

Note: State Senator Thomas Albert (the proposed plant is in his district) voted against the subsidy, while State Senator John Damoose, who represents Emmet County, voted for it. Link.
