“While our state has grappled with the pandemic, it is important that we now take action to confront the realities facing Michiganders as we reengage our economy. I’m proud to vote for this budget because it expands healthcare access, provides worker protections, and preserves school funding while providing districts flexibility and options, and ensures we all have access to clean water during this pandemic and beyond. This budget reflects the values of our state, and I applaud my colleagues on both sides of the aisle and Gov. Whitmer for finding a path forward that allows us to better protect families while also jump-starting our economic recovery in a safe manner.”
