Chief Jeff Heppler of the Village of Augusta Police Department, who also serves as a Kalamazoo County commissioner, accompanies House Republican Leader Matt Hall, R-Richland Township, at the Michigan State Capitol on Wednesday, Jan. 25. Hall hosted Heppler and other honored guests from Southwest Michigan at the governor’s State of the State address.
“Despite efforts from the governor and her allies to block crucial tax relief for every single working family and small business in Michigan, the income tax rollback will happen this year,” Hall said.
“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 Their pay cut plan has repealed our right-to-work law, forcing unionization on Michigan workers and taking the fruits of their labor.”
“Since the beginning Gov. Whitmer has tried every trick in the book to undermine this income tax cut.” Hall said. “After Republicans stopped the governor’s attempt to block the tax cut with accounting shell games, she and Attorney General Nessel are resorting to fringe legal theories to keep long-lasting relief out of people’s pockets.”
“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.”
