Rep. Fink: Michigan shouldn’t funnel taxpayer dollars to Chinese company

State Rep. Andrew Fink today expressed his disapproval of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s efforts to bring a Chinese Communist Party-linked company to Michigan.

Whitmer this week issued a statement from Davos, Switzerland – site of the World Economic Forum – declaring her support for wooing a new battery manufacturing plant with ties to Contemporary Amperex Technology (CATL), a company based in China. Earlier this week Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin withdrew his state from pursuit of the project, given the ties to China.

“Gov. Youngkin has the right idea – involving the Chinese Communist Party in the production of American electric vehicles is a bad move that stands to threaten U.S. economic stability and security,” said Fink, R-Adams Township. “Michigan should follow suit and reject this investment, sending the message that we do not support the CCP’s corrupt trade practices and showing our commitment to protecting our state and national economy and the personal privacy of Michiganders.”

Fink said he will strongly oppose any effort to use state taxpayer dollars to bring the China-affiliated project to Michigan.
