LANSING, Mich. — State Sen. Michael Webber, R-Rochester Hills, issued the following statement outlining his priorities for the legislative session in response to Gov. Whitmer’s State of the State address Wednesday:
“As we begin the new year, I appreciate the governor’s call to work on a bipartisan basis to lower the cost of living for Michigan families. It is important to promote policies that will help Michigan’s economy by supporting small businesses and the employees who depend on them.
“Parents, students, employers and employees in my district are anxious about the high cost of living. They are frustrated and they fear what this year will bring. Job providers need certainty and consistency from state government. Parents need to be empowered in their kids’ education.
“I look forward to working with my colleagues in the Legislature and with the governor on passing a balanced state budget that uses taxpayer dollars wisely. We must make smart investments in our infrastructure, fix local roads and bridges, and protect our Great Lakes.
“While the road ahead remains challenging, I will work hard to achieve positive results for Michigan families and the residents of my district.”
