    I am writing to ask for your support in Bill 1058, reducing the tax burden on breweries. Michigan is fortunate to be a top 5, and one of the fastest growing, states in number of breweries. A number of companies have seen rapid growth and a very large increase in employment and taxes paid. My company alone has added 10-15 jobs in the last year and pay approximately $200,000 of company taxes per year, which is already 10% of revenues. Any increase would immediately be felt and growth in our businesses will seize. In the past twelve months we have invested almost $1.5 million in expanding, a relatively small number compared to a lot of other breweries. Almost all breweries in Michigan are reasonably small but together our growth has been an often overlooked bright spot in Michigans economy, please help us maintain that. Thank you for your time, Scott Newman-Bale CFO/Owner Shorts Brewing Company (Bellaire and Elk Rapids, MI)
