“With less than a few weeks remaining in a year that’s been unlike any other, the supplemental budget passed by the House today served as an important first step toward getting our small businesses and community members the support they need to continue weathering the impacts of COVID-19.”

“While this legislative compromise lacked additional funding allocated to better assist and support local governments in overcoming the many challenges posed by the ongoing pandemic, I will continue to staunchly advocate in the new year and new term on behalf of Lansing and communities across Michigan facing immense fiscal challenges due to circumstances outside of their control.”
