State Rep. Brian BeGole, of Antrim Township, issued the following statement after voting ‘No’ on House Bill 4001:
“Instead of following through on a 2015 law that would trigger an automatic cut to the individual income tax, Democrat legislators and Gov. Whitmer want to send people $180 checks in a one-time gimmick that will penalize married couples who file taxes jointly, shrink paychecks and won’t provide consistent relief as families and working seniors struggle every day with high costs.
