After Gov. Gretchen Whitmer claimed she accomplished much for small businesses throughout 2021, state Rep. John Damoose of Harbor Springs today issued the following statement highlighting the governor’s record of executive orders and vetoes that hurt small businesses:
“Gov. Whitmer’s self-aggrandizing statement treats small businesses as a political prop. Her actual accomplishments for them this year involve a lot of restrictions and rejections. She kept burdensome capacity limits in place until June, and she repeatedly vetoed legislation to help hurting small businesses — from tax relief to compensation for unconstitutional fines. The governor’s 2021 track record is one of blatant disregard for local job providers.”

Rep. Damoose says he now expects the Committee to approve an amended version of the bill as soon […]
Rep. Damoose talks about the path ahead for his HB 5557, part of a two-bill package, with HB 5556, that would allow community colleges in Michigan to grant Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degrees. The plan is out of committee and before the full House.
