State Rep. Will Bruck today issued the following statement following Gov. Whitmer’s 2024 State of the State address:

“Gov. Whitmer may have sung the praises of her new green energy mandates during the State of the State address, but the people of Michigan aren’t going to be pleased when they start receiving electric bills that are double their current rates. Workers at the Monroe power plant, left jobless when the mandates force existing coal-powered plants to shut down, won’t be celebrating when they’re out looking for new jobs. And families throughout Monroe and Lenawee counties certainly won’t be commending the loss of local control when state bureaucrats override their wishes and greenlight massive wind and solar farms in their neighborhoods.”

In response to the overall direction of Gov. Whitmer’s address, Buck added:

“The governor’s overall priorities do not line up with Michiganders’ priorities, and although there have been some beneficial changes this past year, we are certainly heading in the wrong direction economically, socially and educationally.”
