House Republican Leader Matt Hall, R-Richland Township, on Friday issued the following statement after the governor signed laws to repeal Michigan’s right-to-work law, as well as to instate prevailing wage requirements on state-funded construction projects while opening up small businesses to frivolous complaints and lawsuits:
“Gov. Whitmer and Democrats have hurt Michigan’s ability to compete to attract high-paying careers. Their pay cut plan has repealed our right-to-work law, forcing unionization on Michigan workers and taking the fruits of their labor. Without right-to-work, businesses will find more competitive states for their manufacturing plants and research and development facilities, and workers and careers will drift away. To add economic insult to injury, the Democrats’ prevailing wage law will expose small businesses in our communities to frivolous legal harassment from competitors and activists. And these new laws are only the beginning of Democrats’ anti-business, anti-worker policies that will cause Michiganders to miss out on future opportunities.”
“Democrats gave hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to Gotion despite Michiganders’ major concerns about the company’s ties to the Chinese Communist Party and how the plant will interfere with our natural resources,” said House Republican Leader Matt Hall, R-Richland Township.
“Gov. Whitmer’s heavily-skewed, partisan commission is nothing but a Trojan horse for new taxes,” Hall said. “After four years of failure, the governor has no plan to keep young people in Michigan, no excuse for our crumbling roads, and no vision to improve childhood reading levels.”
House Republican Leader Matt Hall, R-Richland Township, on Tuesday issued the following statement after the House Elections Committee passed House Bill 4156, legislation that would join Michigan to the National Popular Vote Compact and undermine the state’s role as a key swing state.
“Michiganders want public safety in our communities, but House Democrats are pushing radical, unprecedented plans to let dangerous criminals roam our neighborhoods,” said Hall, R-Richland Township. “The Democrats’ newest, extreme proposal could release the most brutal murderers and rapists from prison and inject them back into our communities.”
