House Republican Leader Matt Hall, of Richland Township, today issued the following statement:
“Let’s get to work to make life more affordable for the people of Michigan. We could have secured relief for working families last year, but the Democrats played games and refused to negotiate. Now, their proposal would make Michiganders wait a year to receive any relief. The governor and Democrats should work with House Republicans to secure real relief for the people without delay.”
“After failing to land other high-profile Ford deals, Gov. Whitmer gave away the store to bring Ford to Marshall,” Hall said. “But with Democrats pushing policies that make Michigan less competitive, the $1.7 billion in subsidies and tax incentives still fell short.”
“Democrats are throwing out local control to force solar panels all over our small towns and windmills all over our farmland, and they’re doing it just to make a few activists happy,” Hall said. “The people I talk to are concerned about recent power outages, and they’re concerned about their monthly bills. The Democrat plan does nothing to solve those problems.”
“This year, the Democrat majority has been consumed with an extreme agenda that is making life more expensive in our state, but even more costs on Michiganders are coming next,” said Hall, R-Richland Township.
