State Rep. Ryan Berman, of Commerce Township, stands with Officer Matthew Grubb of the Orchard Lake Police Department at the state Capitol on Sept. 9. Berman hosted Grubb at the annual Michigan House of Representatives memorial of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
State Rep. Ryan Berman, of Commerce Township, today issued the following statement after Gov. Gretchen Whitmer vetoed his plan to provide free photo identification so Michigan citizens can vote securely and easily:
“Michigan citizens deserve accessible, secure elections. We should guarantee free photo identification for each voter to cast a secure ballot, but Gov. Whitmer vetoed my plan to increase voter access and election integrity.”
After Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced a plan supposedly to help law enforcement, state Rep. Ryan Berman said her proposal was a similar, but weaker version of a plan Berman and fellow representatives proposed earlier this year.
