LANSING, Mich. — State Sen. Aric Nesbitt, R-Lawton, issued the following statement on Tuesday, in response to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s 2019 State of the State address:
“I am happy to see the governor discuss Michigan’s success in recent years.
“Michigan is stronger because in recent years we expanded freedom and opportunity, eliminated burdensome regulations, lowered taxes and paid down our state’s debt.
“We can continue moving Michigan forward by working together to lower auto insurance rates, fix roads and continue paying down debt.
“I will continue to stand strong for our West Michigan values, and hopefully the governor is willing to solve challenges in a way that protects Michigan’s hardworking taxpayers.”
