State Rep. Cam Cavitt, R-Cheboygan, released a statement today following the governor’s executive budget recommendations. Cavitt serves as vice chair of the House Military and Veterans Affairs and State Police Appropriations subcommittee.
“Today, the governor gave us no hope that she will veer away from the radical spending spree that’s come to define her time in office. Instead of returning money to the taxpayers or paying down our debt, she keeps announcing expensive new programs.
“The governor continues to plan investments in key Democrat strongholds while leaving the whole of Michigan to pay for it. Working people in Northern Michigan and the Upper Peninsula deserve the same consideration and investment as Detroit and Grand Rapids.
“The governor’s recommendations included some specific focus on local law enforcement. In the past, Northeast Michigan has been left out of these valuable programs. This practice cannot continue. Law enforcement in our rural areas is just as important as that in more urban areas and deserves same the consideration and funding.
“I was pleased to hear the governor plans to finish the budget by May. I sincerely hope Democrats can keep that timeline.”
“Please encourage anyone affected by the plant closing to contact my office. We can help guide them through the unemployment process and be a resource as they navigate this difficult time,” Cavitt said. “People are waking up to difficult news this morning. Please know that you do not have to go through this alone. There is a whole community behind you. We’re ready to help.”
“The Democrat majority forced through terrible gun legislation that I opposed at every level,” Cavitt said. “Bills like these set a dangerous precedent for violating Second Amendment rights. I’m committed to undoing these dangerous policies. Our constitutional rights are the bedrock to our society, and we must hold up and honor those rights. However, the radical Democrat plan is now law and people need to be prepared.”
“People harvest deer year-round. Whether it’s farmers with nuisance licenses or a surplus of deer during hunting season, there are always extra deer that need to be processed,” said Cavitt, R-Cheboygan. “MSAH gets the deer to processors and ensures all resulting venison gets to the dinner tables of people who need it.”
