State Rep. Andrew Beeler, R-Port Huron, who serves on the House Committee on Tax Policy, today issued the following statement calling for lower taxes to help Michigan families:
“Michigan has a historic opportunity to roll back taxes for the families across our state who are feeling the painful effects of inflation.
“We shouldn’t wastefully spend the multibillion-dollar, taxpayer-funded surplus in our state coffers. That approach would only further inflate prices without providing real relief for the working families already paying more on the cost of everyday necessities. Nor should we primarily cut taxes simply for special interests.
“Now is the time to be forward-thinking and family-focused with comprehensive tax reform for the people of Michigan.”
Beeler’s statement comes following the Michigan Senate’s passage today of a tax reform plan providing both an individual income tax cut and a corporate tax cut.
“The budget process is out of control. We are spending more and more money and are giving people less and less transparency. This is exactly why people do not trust government,” said Beeler, R-Port Huron.
