House Republican Leader Matt Hall, of Richland Township, today issued the following statement after the Senate Committee on Housing and Human Services amended a bill to make an Earned Income Tax Credit increase retroactive to tax year 2022, echoing House Republicans’ calls for immediate relief:
“House Republicans have been saying all along: The people of Michigan need relief immediately to help with the rising cost of living. We led the charge to provide relief for working families on their tax returns this year, not down the road. Democrats wanted to drag their feet and delay relief, but by standing up for the people of Michigan, Republicans are advancing immediate relief.”
After months of the Democrat majority pushing a far-left partisan agenda, the House will be balanced evenly between Republicans and Democrats. The next several months should be a model of bipartisan cooperation focused on the needs of Michiganders, but that’s not what Democrats seem to have in mind.
“Michiganders want their leaders to work together to make our state safe and successful,” Hall said. “The balance of power in the House of Representatives is a call to bipartisanship, and Michigan legislators on both sides of the aisle should answer the call and find common ground.”
House Republican Leader Matt Hall, R-Richland Township, on Thursday blasted House Democrats for using their last voting session day of the year to push partisan legislation at the behest of left-wing activists to let local politicians ban plastic bags.
