LANSING, Mich. — Senate Republican Leader Aric Nesbitt, R-Porter Township, on Wednesday released the following statement following the governor’s annual State of the State address:
“Republicans are ready to work with the governor to provide Michiganders with immediate tax relief right now. And we’ve heard for months how the governor and Democrats want to lower taxes and provide relief for struggling Michigan families. But actions speak louder than words. Time and again, this governor has vetoed bipartisan proposals to provide real relief for those in need. It is good to see some Democrats joining Senate and House Republicans in the call for immediate relief now for all Michigan families and seniors. We hope the governor will realize that she was wrong and finally be a part of bipartisan efforts to deliver that relief. Immediate tax relief for all Michiganders must be a priority in 2023.”
“Senate and House Republicans will continue to try to work with the governor where we can. But we also will not give up on our efforts to promote the rights of parents, improve the reading and math scores of our children, make our neighborhoods safer and our economy stronger, and to provide families with immediate relief now from record-high prices.”
