Financial Services vice chair comments after governor’s speech
State Rep. Andrea Schroeder – vice chair of the Michigan House Financial Services Committee – tonight said that Michigan can continue its success with Gov. Whitmer’s confirmation that school funding and government transparency are priorities.
“We must make approving a responsible and effective education budget our number one priority this year,” said Schroeder, of Independence Township. “I would also like to continue our focus on increased government transparency to regain the trust of Michigan taxpayers.”
The first-term legislator also said she would like to hear more about the governor’s plans for road improvements.
“It’s not enough to talk about what needs to be done,” she said. “We need a strategy for funding and a systematic timeline in order for this goal to be achieved. I look forward to working with my colleagues in the Legislature and the governor on specific plans in that vein.”
Rep. Schroeder also serves as a member of the Oversight, Energy Policy, Tax Policy, and Commerce and Tourism committees.
