House Republican Leader Matt Hall, R-Richland Township, on Wednesday issued the following statement:
“The public outcry from Michiganders across the state has blown up Gov. Whitmer’s attempt to bankroll corporations by raising taxes on people and small businesses. Now, she appears to be going back to the drawing board for several days to plot a new way to sneak through her secret tax hike. Democrat and Republican lawmakers alike should be united in opposing the governor’s plan to push around the Legislature and force a tax hike on the people of Michigan. When I chaired the House Tax Policy Committee, I would have strongly opposed any governor trying to shut me out of the process, but Democrat committee chairs have shrugged as she cut them out. Gov. Whitmer is moving a shell bill behind closed doors to keep pushing her shady shell games while advancing another secret spending bill. The people’s representatives — of both parties — must unite against the governor’s attempt to block the people’s tax relief just to benefit large corporations.”
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.
“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 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.
“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.
