State Rep. Bronna Kahle today announced priorities for the 2019-20 legislative term including efforts to lower car insurance rates, improve the state’s infrastructure and support Michigan’s most vulnerable residents.

Kahle, of Adrian, joined House Republican colleagues to unveil an action plan called “Leading the Way for an Even Better Michigan.” The document includes several priorities that will receive special emphasis in the next two years.

“Michigan has come a long way in the past several years, but there is still work to be done so people from all walks of life can look ahead to a bright future and share in our state’s successes,” Kahle said.

Among Kahle’s priorities:

  • Lower car insurance rates. Kahle supports reforms to drive down costs for Michigan drivers, who now pay the highest average premiums in the nation.
  • Investments to improve schools and job preparation programs. Kahle continues to support record-high investments in K-12 education, with a special emphasis on helping students and workers gain skills needed to succeed in an always-evolving economy.
  • Road and water system improvements. Kahle supports Michigan’s record-high investment in road repairs with a heightened focus on creating an efficient system to deliver the best results possible for taxpayers. She also continues to support efforts to detect and clean up PFAS contamination while working toward long-lasting improvements to ensure safe drinking water is available in all Michigan communities.
  • Improved mental health and support services. Building on a special House task force from last year, Kahle will push for policies expanding access to mental health services so those facing challenges may live happier and independent lives. She also supports improving programs for military veterans, seniors, human trafficking survivors, children and others who may have particular needs.

“I am confident that by working together we will find solutions to the biggest challenges facing our state,” Kahle said. “That is how we will make life better in Lenawee County and lead the way into the next decade.”
