Rep. Meerman, one of the co-chairs of the bipartisan House School Safety Task Force, talks to reporters on the House floor Wednesday about the group’s work. Rep. Meerman says the four Republicans and four Democrats who make up the panel are working on finding consensus to develop legislation that will be introduced as soon as next month, and have spoken with the families of victims of school violence.
“The innocent lives of the unborn are threatened by the passage of Proposal 3 and this bill package goes even further than what Michigan voters approved in November,” Meerman said. “The mislabeled ‘Reproductive Health Act’ not only eliminates health and safety standards in abortion clinics, it also removes protections that ensure women are not coerced into receiving an abortion.”
“The governor’s radical energy policy comes at a time when Michiganders are forced to tighten their budgets and brace for rising costs everywhere form the grocery store to the fuel pump. The timeline laid out by the governor and Lansing Democrats is untenable and will come at a cost to our economy, agricultural production, and the authority of local governments.”
