“When people get their 2023 tax returns, many will be getting back more money than they expected,” Johnsen said. “Those increased returns are a direct result of a Republican tax cut. Unfortunately, Democrats twisted the law, which was intended to be permanent, so it would only have effect through 2023. This new Republican plan couldn’t be clearer. The income tax would be immediately lowered to 3.9%, getting tax relief for the working class and leaving no bureaucratic loopholes for the governor to exploit.”
“Gov. Whitmer claims she’s helped Michigan families keep more of what they earn and reduce household expenses, but that’s not what I hear from my constituents who continue to suffer at the hands of inflation and burdensome income tax rates.”
“On Tuesday, we saw the people of Keene Township clearly and loudly object to proposed solar ordinances that would have drastically increased the development of solar farms in my district. Yet Lansing Democrats continue to push for radical, costly and unnecessarily rushed energy mandates similar to ones that have resulted to rolling blackouts in California.”
