Governor’s Signature Effectively Keeps Rollback In Place
LANSING, MI – Rep. Donni Steele (R-Orion) celebrated the income tax rollback coming thanks to the 2015 law put in place by House and Senate Republicans that would take effect when government took too much money in. Republicans in the Legislature at the time put this in place as a measure of relief.
“Working families and small businesses are going to get the relief they deserve thanks to this important rollback,” said Rep. Donni Steele. “I’m very proud to have worked with my colleagues to ensure the rollback stays in place, creating a tax cut that will help everyone across the board. Small businesses will win too, as they’ll be seeing a measure of relief at a time they need it most as they continue to recover from the pandemic. This isn’t a one-time deal, it’s a lasting type of relief that everyone needs – especially during a tough economic environment where inflation continues to wreak havoc.”
“The timeline laid out by the governor was clear political manipulation of the election process,” said Steele, R-Orion Township. “Voters in these communities deserved a fair and honest process. Instead, the governor found a new way to operate in the shadows. Potential candidates may have missed the filing opportunity while celebrating Thanksgiving with their families. This political gamesmanship continues to erode our democracy.”
“I’m proud I voted no on the Democrat’s lackluster transparency package. Michigan is tired of secret money influencing its politics. People deserve to know if their lawmaker takes a luxury trip paid for by a nonprofit. Under the plan, elected officials remain exempt from reporting travel and gifts paid for by nonprofit groups.”

“I drive to Lansing swerving potholes and hearing from local residents tired of blackouts and failing schools,” said Steele, R-Orion Township. “Those are all issues I’ve been trying to fix since I was elected, but the majority has blocked our plans at every turn. Adjourning nearly two months early instead of working through complex issues and oversight is a complete waste of state resources. We need to stay here and do the people’s work.”
