I hope you are having a great start to the new year! We returned to the Capitol this week to begin the final year of this legislative term. I am excited for the work that lies ahead of us and eager to continue fighting for the legislation introduced last year.
Invest in MI Community Infrastructure Survey
With the passage of the federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, Michigan is expected to receive billions in federal funding for infrastructure projects. To plan for this funding, Michigan House Democrats are collecting input from residents about the infrastructure needs in their communities. Share your thoughts via this survey.
Join me for my first coffee hour of the new year on Friday, Jan. 28, from 9:30-10:30 a.m. at the Portage Senior Center, 320 Library Lane in Portage.
These events provide an excellent opportunity to receive updates on my work at the Capitol and discuss any other questions or concerns you may have.
I hope to see you there!
Morse Force Intern Corner
I am excited to welcome CeCe, a student from Western Michigan University, as a legislative intern in my office. Our offices depend on dedicated interns to assist constituents, research policy and so much more. For this month’s e-newsletter, I asked Cece to share a piece of legislation introduced in the House this session that she would like to see become law.
“One bill I hope to see pass is House Bill 4248, which aims at ensuring safe drinking water for Michigan residents by testing schools and child care centers for lead in their water supplies. This is an important step to help rectify the situation in Flint and to avoid another occurrence in a different area. I believe more legislation like this is needed to create much-needed procedural and distributional environmental justice.”
