Cochran’s Listening Tour Town Hall to Focus on Tax Fairness

Tuesday, March 28, 2017

LANSING — State Rep. Tom Cochran (D-Mason) invites his constituents to join him for a “This is Your House” listening tour town hall to be held at 7 p.m. on Monday, April 10, at the Mason Historical Museum Auditorium, 200 E. Oak St. in Mason. Special guests will include Michigan League for Public Policy legislative coordinator Rachel Richards and Doug C. Drake, the former director for the Michigan Treasury Department’s Office of Revenue and Tax Analysis. The town hall will have a special focus on tax fairness for Michigan’s working families.

“Earlier this year, House Republicans failed in their attempt to rewrite the state income tax code in a way that would save working families just a few dollars a month while giving millionaires thousands of dollars in tax breaks — all while siphoning money away from schools, roads, and police and fire protection,” Rep. Cochran said. “Now that their disastrous plan has failed, it’s time to discuss real tax relief for working families. That is why I am supporting a plan that would save families as much as $600 a year while raising additional revenue for essential services, education, and infrastructure.”

For questions regarding this event, contact the office of state Rep. Tom Cochran at (517) 373-0587.
