“Speaker Tate still refuses to admit that the House is in shared power, but he’s feeling its effects as House Republicans rack up wins each time Democrats move our way. But even as Republicans secure victories, Democrats are blocking progress on the pressing issues facing Michiganders.”
“As Michigan struggles to grow, the governor just wants to slap a Band-Aid on our economy while ignoring the deep-seated problems that Democrat policies have exacerbated,” Hall said. “Our state needs to strengthen our economy by lowering our taxes and fostering a fair, reasonable regulatory environment that makes sense for Michigan workers and small businesses.”
“In this era of shared power, House Republicans are achieving the priorities of our caucus members and delivering wins for the people of Michigan. … If the speaker and House Democrats keep moving our way, we’ll have a real shared power agreement in no time.”
“Budgets are about priorities, but Gov. Whitmer’s disappointing budget proposal shows her priorities are out of step with the people of Michigan. They don’t want new fool’s gold programs that feel good but don’t provide real value for their tax dollars. They want government to do the basics efficiently and effectively.”
“Tonight, the governor talked more about the Detroit Lions than any substantive plan to solve our state’s problems. When it comes to actually helping the people of Michigan, she is all roar and no bite.”
“Mr. Speaker, it takes 55 votes to pass a bill.
“Rejecting bipartisan conversations, rushing amendments, and holding votes before even asking Republicans if they support the final bill — these are not the recipe for getting the people’s work done.”
