State Rep. Andrew Beeler, R-Port Huron, who serves on the House Committee on Tax Policy, today issued the following statement calling for lower taxes to help Michigan families:
“Michigan has a historic opportunity to roll back taxes for the families across our state who are feeling the painful effects of inflation.
“We shouldn’t wastefully spend the multibillion-dollar, taxpayer-funded surplus in our state coffers. That approach would only further inflate prices without providing real relief for the working families already paying more on the cost of everyday necessities. Nor should we primarily cut taxes simply for special interests.
“Now is the time to be forward-thinking and family-focused with comprehensive tax reform for the people of Michigan.”
Beeler’s statement comes following the Michigan Senate’s passage today of a tax reform plan providing both an individual income tax cut and a corporate tax cut.
Rep. Beeler talks about House passage Friday of the state’s budget for the 2023 Fiscal Year, saying the spending plan uses extra revenue to pay down state debt while also setting aside dollars for tax relief.
The House Oversight Committee today approved a plan state Rep. Andrew Beeler helped introduce to rein in broad emergency authority used by state executive agencies — bolstering accountability to the people’s elected representatives in the Michigan Legislature.
