Comstock Township Supervisor Randy Thompson, Comstock Township Clerk Nicole Beauchamp, and House Republican Leader Matt Hall, R-Richland Township, pose for a photo at the Michigan State Capitol on Wednesday, Jan. 25. Thompson and Beauchamp were two of Hall’s honored guests from Southwest Michigan who joined him at the governor’s State of the State address.
“DTE’s $368 million electric rate increase on Michigan residents and job providers is nothing compared to what’s coming down the pipeline next. The utilities will collect a windfall under Democrats’ energy mandates that became law this week.”
“The population council’s current proposal isn’t even a real plan and has no strategy to grow our population,” Hall said. “It’s just a long wish list for new revenues — tax hikes on Michiganders.”
“Michiganders want their leaders to work together to make our state safe and successful,” Hall said. “The balance of power in the House of Representatives is a call to bipartisanship, and Michigan legislators on both sides of the aisle should answer the call and find common ground.”
