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. Tullio Liberati (D-Allen Park) issued the following statement on Whitmer’s address:

“It is time that we tackle the issue of rising prices. Michiganders are finding it harder and harder to keep their hard-earned money in their pockets, and they are finding themselves having to choose between paying bills and putting food on the table. Enough is enough. It’s time that we support Michigan workers, seniors and families by passing legislation that will let them keep more of the money they earn.”
