Nesbitt releases statement in response to governor’s tax cut veto

LANSING, Mich. State Sen. Aric Nesbitt, R- Lawton, on Friday issued the following statement after Gov. Gretchen Whitmer vetoed Senate Bill 768, a bipartisan $2.5 billion tax cut plan he first introduced to roll back the state’s personal income tax rate to 3.9%, provide families with a $500 per child tax credit, and protect more retirement income for Michigan’s seniors:

“People in every part of Michigan are struggling more and more to keep up with daily expenses and record inflation that hasn’t been experienced in more than 40 years — today the governor told them, ‘Tough luck, you’re on your own.’ This tax relief would have helped each and every Michigander. Unfortunately, once again our governor has chosen to rule instead of serve.”
