House Republican Leader Matt Hall, R-Richland Township, hosts a forum with community residents in Cooper Township Hall on Thursday, July 20. Hall answered questions from attendees and shared an update about the state budget and other issues he’s tackling in the Michigan Legislature on behalf of the people of Kalamazoo and Allegan counties.
“DTE’s $368 million electric rate increase on Michigan residents and job providers is nothing compared to what’s coming down the pipeline next. The utilities will collect a windfall under Democrats’ energy mandates that became law this week.”
“The population council’s current proposal isn’t even a real plan and has no strategy to grow our population,” Hall said. “It’s just a long wish list for new revenues — tax hikes on Michiganders.”
“Michiganders want their leaders to work together to make our state safe and successful,” Hall said. “The balance of power in the House of Representatives is a call to bipartisanship, and Michigan legislators on both sides of the aisle should answer the call and find common ground.”
