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.”
“I negotiated a bipartisan deal in good faith with Gov. Whitmer and Democrat leaders to protect Michigan small businesses from overzealous state tax bureaucrats,” Hall said. “But now that Democrats got the Republican votes they needed, Democrats are infighting and killing good policy that would help local job providers.”
House Republican Leader Matt Hall, R-Richland Township, on Tuesday issued the following statement after House Democrats passed legislation to repeal Michigan’s right-to-work law, forcing workers to pay union dues, and another bill to reinstate prevailing wage requirements that increase the cost of government construction projects:
“Democrat leadership and their union boss friends even brought a COVID-positive legislator to session just to rush through their radical repeal of right-to-work and insulate it from the people’s right to block bad laws via referendum,” Hall said.
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.
