Nesbitt reacts to governor’s budget recommendations

LANSING, Mich. — State Sen. Aric Nesbitt, R-Lawton, issued the following statement on Tuesday, in response to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s fiscal year 2020 budget presentation:

“I look forward to once again passing a balanced budget that pays down debt and invests in roads and education. We also need to continue efforts to lower the cost of auto insurance.

“This morning’s budget recommendations tax too much, spend too much, and fail to adequately pay down debt.

“I will continue working on behalf of the hardworking taxpayers of West Michigan.”
