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. After the event, state Rep. Cynthia Neeley (D-Flint) issued the following statement on Whitmer’s address: 

“During this address, we were reminded of the work that needs to be done — it is necessary hard work and progress from here. Michigan education, Michigan kids and Michigan’s hard-working families are rightfully the key focus of the governor’s agenda. Our priorities are tied together to craft a brighter future and support the wellbeing of all Michiganders. Let’s continue to prioritize the people. I am proud to stand with the governor.”
