State Rep. Andrew Beeler, R-Port Huron, today issued the following statement after Gov. Gretchen Whitmer made her annual budget recommendations:
“Families in Sanilac and St. Clair counties are spending more for groceries and gas. A timely tax cut would help the people of Michigan pay the growing price of inflation.
“However, the governor’s absurdly expensive proposal would take our state’s finances in the wrong direction. She wants enormous spending when we should be saving. Not only should we allow people to save more of their own money with tax cuts, but we also need a cost-effective budget that saves for the unknowns of the future.”
Rep. Beeler talks about House passage Thursday of his HB 5288, which clarifies that an application for an absentee ballot must include an actual signature as opposed to an electronic signature, a move he says will provide parity between the different ways Michigan residents can vote.
The Michigan House of Representatives today approved state Rep. Andrew Beeler’s plan to specify that a Michigan voter must physically sign an absentee application before receiving a ballot.
As rising fuel prices continue to increase costs on Michigan families, state Rep. Andrew Beeler, who serves on the House Tax Policy Committee, and the Michigan House of Representatives today approved a plan to repeal the state gas tax for six months.
