“Democrats are throwing out local control to force solar panels all over our small towns and windmills all over our farmland, and they’re doing it just to make a few activists happy,” Hall said. “The people I talk to are concerned about recent power outages, and they’re concerned about their monthly bills. The Democrat plan does nothing to solve those problems.”
“This year, the Democrat majority has been consumed with an extreme agenda that is making life more expensive in our state, but even more costs on Michiganders are coming next,” said Hall, R-Richland Township.
“These numbers reveal that people don’t want to start or raise their families in Michigan, as they move to states with lower taxes, high-paying careers, good roads and bridges, quality education, and safe communities,” Hall said.
Michiganders want state government to keep our communities safe, build dependable roads, and give kids a good education — all while living within its means. But with Democrats in charge, our state’s newest budget neglects these essential services and spends so much on pork projects and unsustainable programs they’ll have to raise taxes just to pay for it all.
“The governor’s population commission will be under a lot of pressure to raise taxes because the democrats enacted a budget that spent our entire state’s surplus and grew government without making big enough investments in roads, bridges, safe communities paying down debt and education,” said Hall.
“Safeguarding the integrity of our elections is incredibly important, and fraud should be thoroughly investigated wherever and whenever it occurs. These are very serious charges being leveled today, and we will all be watching this case closely.”
“Michiganders want their hard-earned tax dollars invested to fix local roads, keep our neighborhoods and schools safe, and provide other essential public services, but Democrats are hiking taxes to go on a ridiculous spending spree while setting aside the people’s most urgent needs,” Hall said.
“As families and job providers flee Michigan, piling confusing and useless regulatory burdens on small businesses and citizens will make it even harder for our state to compete,” said Hall, R-Richland Township.
