Rep. Aragona issues statement on Whitmer’s response to the housing shortage in Michigan
RELEASE|January 25, 2024

State Rep. Joseph Aragona, Republican vice chair of the Housing Subcommittee, issued the following statement in response to the housing plan she mentioned during her State of the State address tonight:

“As Gov. Whitmer claims credit for addressing Michigan’s housing problems with federal dollars, we must acknowledge that throwing more and more money at this without fixing our broken bureaucracy won’t solve our problems. Instead of pushing for solutions, her desire to grow government bureaucracy and her support for policies like reinstituting prevailing wage seem counterproductive, limiting housing construction and driving up costs. A better approach involves creating an environment that supports local contractors, reducing bureaucratic red tape, and getting the government out of the way so our communities can make progress.”
