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. Angela Witwer (Delta Township) issued the following statement on Whitmer’s address:

“Gov. Whitmer has the right priorities. She’s protecting older Michiganders by repealing the retirement tax, a goal I have sought after for years. I look forward to working with her and my colleagues across the aisle to continue to attract investments in manufacturing to create new jobs. Her leadership is helping to make Michigan an excellent place to live, work and retire.”
