LANSING, Mich., Jan. 26, 2022 — Today, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer delivered her fourth State of the State address from Detroit Diesel. Her remarks highlighted her efforts to fund education, reform taxes and lower prescription drug costs. In response, State Rep. Julie Brixie (D-Meridian Township) issued the following statement: 

“Gov. Whitmer hit on the dinner table issues tonight and presented a bold agenda that should garner broad bipartisan support. Lowering the cost of insulin will help 1 million Michiganders who need it but can’t afford to pay the staggering $1,200 to $20,000 a year. Her tax reforms will help working families and retirees. Gov. Whitmer and our state have already brought thousands of auto manufacturing jobs to the Lansing region, and now it’s time to keep our momentum going with this bold, bipartisan plan.”
