State Rep. Timmy Beson, R-Bangor Township, today issued the following statement criticizing Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s new call for a sales tax suspension on school supplies after she previously vetoed three bipartisan tax relief plans passed by the Legislature:
“Each time I voted for bipartisan tax relief, the governor played keep-away from Michigan families. Now she’s trying to fake people out again — she’s trying to make them forget she blocked tax relief with her vetoes. The governor’s high-stakes game of keep-away has to stop, so we can actually get relief to the people who need help.”
Beson and his legislative colleagues earlier this year approved two different plans for income tax relief, with increased savings for seniors and families, as well as a plan to pause the state’s gas tax of 27 cents per gallon for six months. Whitmer vetoed all three, despite the bipartisan support they received in the Legislature.
