Facebook’s data center deal with Eagle Mountain includes a $5 million sweetener from the state

(Benjamin Wood | Tribune file photo) A rendering of the planned Facebook data center to be built in Eagle Mountain. The center was announced by Gov. Gary Herbert on Wednesday, May 30, 2018.

Facebook will save up to $5.8 million in sales taxes at its planned Eagle Mountain data center, in addition to the roughly $150 million in property tax incentives offered to the social media giant.

LANSING, Mich. (March 20, 2018) – On Monday, Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder signed a bill that bans “material support or resources” for warrantless federal surveillance programs. This is an essential step every state needs to take at a time when the federal government seems unlikely to ever end unconstitutional spying on its own.

Rep. Martin Howrylak (R-Troy) introduced House Bill 4430 (HB4430) last spring. The new law prohibits the state and its political subdivisions from assisting, participating with, or providing “material support or resources, to a federal agency to enable it to collect, or to facilitate in the collection or use of a person’s electronic data” unless one of five conditions apply:
