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 strengthening 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. Will Snyder (D-Muskegon) issued the following statement on the address:


“I am proud to be a part of a new day in Michigan. Together, we can provide the quality of life to the people of Michigan that they deserve — a prosperous Michigan, where government fights for citizens, not against them. That means supporting workers, stimulating job creation, investing in workforce and talent development, and fighting for collective bargaining. The future is big enough for all of us, and I am ready to work with the governor to make it happen.”
