State Rep. Annette Glenn, of Midland, released the following statement in response to tonight’s State of the State address:
“I look forward to working with Gov. Whitmer to increase student reading ability, bring down the cost of car insurance, and fix our roads, and I believe we can do that without raising taxes. In fact, I hope the governor will be open to reducing the tax burden on Michigan residents. It’s one thing to talk about fixing roads, spending more on schools, and starting new programs. It’s another thing to pay for them.
“We have a responsibility to step outside the Lansing bubble and make investments in the services Michigan families depend on without increasing their tax bill. I’m committed to fighting for the values most important to Michigan families: honest and transparent government, responsible fiscal management, and strong local communities.”
