It is my strongly held belief that the people of Michigan deserve to know how the state is spending the their money, but the current House Majority is using the budget process to strip important transparency measures and hide from accountability.

Instead, utility companies are already pushing renewable energy expenses onto the consumer before the extreme policies are even implemented.”
