LANSING, Mich. — State Sen. Thomas Albert, R-Lowell, on Wednesday issued the following statement in response to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s 2024 State of the State address:
“We all want to make Michigan a better place to live — but there is a much better path forward than the one Gov. Whitmer outlined in her State of the State address.
“The governor and her Big Government central planners act like they are smarter than the people of Michigan, know how we all should live and how our money should be spent. They want to use more of your money to create new government programs, expand corporate welfare, and give tax breaks to people who can already afford expensive new electric cars.
“Their elitist policies don’t do enough to help the millions of Michiganders who are battling inflation and just trying to build a better life for themselves and their families. We should instead focus on tried-and-true approaches that we know work — limiting the role of government, lowering taxes for everyone, improving rather than expanding existing student programs, and growing our state from the ground up.”
