Ahead of the governor’s annual State of the State address, House Republican Leader Matt Hall and Senate Republican Leader Aric Nesbitt on Wednesday called on Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to work with Republicans and prioritize helping the people of Michigan.
House Republican Leader Matt Hall, of Richland Township, today issued the following statement after the Senate Committee on Housing and Human Services amended a bill to make an Earned Income Tax Credit increase retroactive to tax year 2022, echoing House Republicans’ calls for immediate relief:
House Republican Leader Matt Hall, of Richland Township, issued the following statement after Michigan’s nonpartisan Office of the Auditor General released another audit of the Unemployment Insurance Agency’s failures during the COVID-19 pandemic, its fourth in a series of five that was initiated in 2020 after Hall and other legislative leaders requested a review.
“House Republicans are ready to get to work to attract the high-paying careers of the future, make life more affordable for every Michigander, and foster safer communities for Michigan families. We’ll continue working across the aisle to achieve these common-sense goals.”
“The governor not knowing who was in the negotiations is part of the problem. We had a deal, but she backed out — jeopardizing hundreds of new jobs in the Upper Peninsula and blocking tax savings for Michigan’s local job providers. Gov. Whitmer and incoming Democratic leaders are going to have to learn how to govern better than this and work together with Republicans so that we can help the people of Michigan.”
