“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.
“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.”
“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 Their pay cut plan has repealed our right-to-work law, forcing unionization on Michigan workers and taking the fruits of their labor.”
“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.”
“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.
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:
House Republican Leader Matt Hall on Thursday led the Michigan House of Representatives in approving two landmark plans to clarify tax laws and provide savings to Michigan small businesses that have endured unfair audits from the Michigan Department of Treasury.
“The rushed Democrat pay cut plan, which would repeal Michigan’s right-to-work law, will steer workers and businesses away from our state, when we’re already falling behind,” Hall said.
“Democrats are rushing through their pay-cut plan to take hard-earned money from workers’ paychecks and give it to union lobbyists. Our right to work law empowers people to choose good careers without fearing they could lose their jobs if they don’t pay a union, and these protections guarantee workers job security and greater accountability over their representation,” Hall said.
“The National Popular Vote Compact would cripple the influence of Michigan voters and cause candidates for our nation’s highest office to ignore communities in our state by focusing on big cities in New York or California,” Hall said.
“Make no mistake. Gov. Whitmer can try to delay all she wants, but unless she deploys accounting tricks to make nearly three quarters of a billion dollars vanish, the people of Michigan will have a permanent income tax cut this year,” Hall said.
House Republican Leader Matt Hall, R-Richland Township, today issued the following statement celebrating expected tax relief for the people of Michigan after the Senate advanced tax legislation without blocking an automatic income tax cut.
