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.”
“The budget process is out of control. We are spending more and more money and are giving people less and less transparency. This is exactly why people do not trust government,” said Beeler, R-Port Huron.
