LANSING, Mich., Jan. 25, 2023 — Gov. Gretchen Whitmer delivered the State of the State address tonight before a joint session of the Legislature at the Capitol in Lansing. In the speech, the governor discussed her legislative agenda for the new term, which includes bolstering the economy, increasing public safety, lowering costs for families, protecting fundamental rights, supporting Michigan workers, investing in early childhood education, and attracting talent to Michigan. State Rep. Joey Andrews (D-St. Joseph) issued the following statement on the governor’s address:

“Working families are feeling the effects of inflation and are struggling to get by. The House has already introduced legislation this term that would allow working families and seniors to keep more of their hard-earned money in their pockets. I’m glad Gov. Whitmer also aims to tackle this issue and supports our expansion of the working families tax credit.”
