LANSING, Mich., Jan. 26, 2022 — Today, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer delivered her fourth State of the State address from Detroit Diesel. Her remarks highlighted proposals to improve the lives of Michigan families. In response, Democratic Leader Donna Lasinski (D-Scio Township) issued the following statement:

“House Democrats are proud to stand with Gov. Whitmer on our shared priorities. Working together over the past three years, House Democrats have delivered record-breaking investments in Michigan schools, finally closing the decades-long gap in per-pupil funding. We’ve stood side by side with the governor to keep people safe during the pandemic as we ramped up testing, treatment and vaccines for millions across the state. Looking to the future, we will fight to bring more good-paying manufacturing jobs back to Michigan and secure critical investments in Michigan’s future like the ones General Motors announced just yesterday. We will continue to put Michigan families first by providing real tax relief for working people and lowering the costs of everyday needs like prescription drugs. And we will work hand in hand to put billions in federal infrastructure to work in our communities to ensure safe water in every tap and reliable roads and bridges under every Michigan driver. I am looking forward to partnering with Gov. Whitmer on these transformational opportunities for Michigan and am excited about all of the great things in store for us.”
