House Republican Leader Matt Hall, R-Richland Township on Friday issued the following statement, reacting to the governor’s latest proposal to issue one-time checks to Michigan residents, which reporting has said could still block an automatic, permanent income tax rollback for Michiganders and small business in the process:
“The governor is trying to create a false choice. We are sitting on a $9 billion surplus. Michigan families do not have to choose between immediate relief and a permanent income tax cut. This latest scheme crafted behind closed doors appears to be the governor’s newest attempt to cancel the income tax cut that’s due to every Michigan family, worker, and small business this year and every year afterward.”
“Gov. Whitmer and Democrats have hurt Michigan’s ability to compete to attract high-paying careers,” Hall said. Their pay cut plan has repealed our right-to-work law, forcing unionization on Michigan workers and taking the fruits of their labor.”
“Democrat leadership and their union boss friends even brought a COVID-positive legislator to session just to rush through their radical repeal of right-to-work and insulate it from the people’s right to block bad laws via referendum,” Hall said.
“I negotiated a bipartisan deal in good faith with Gov. Whitmer and Democrat leaders to protect Michigan small businesses from overzealous state tax bureaucrats,” Hall said. “But now that Democrats got the Republican votes they needed, Democrats are infighting and killing good policy that would help local job providers.”
House Republican Leader Matt Hall, R-Richland Township, on Tuesday issued the following statement after House Democrats passed legislation to repeal Michigan’s right-to-work law, forcing workers to pay union dues, and another bill to reinstate prevailing wage requirements that increase the cost of government construction projects:
