State Rep. Andrew Beeler, the assistant House Republican leader, on Thursday criticized new Democratic legislation to give union bosses more leverage over workers, fund union dues with tax credits, and allow unions to skirt campaign finance limits.
State Rep. Andrew Beeler on Wednesday criticized Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s administration for adding $750 million in taxpayer funding to a previously announced plan to pay to help Ford Motor Co. establish a new electric vehicle battery plant in Marshall.
“As Gov. Whitmer celebrates a deal for Ford and China’s Contemporary Amperex Technology, the final bill for Michigan taxpayers is still up in the air,” Beeler said. “The governor is still seeking at least $800 million more for the SOAR fund that could all go to this project. This governor already broke her no new taxes pledge, and it’s clear she’s on her way to breaking her transparency pledge again, so it’s time she comes clean.”
“The Democratic majority is doing whatever they can to pass a tax hike onto families and small businesses throughout Michigan. This bill was written in secret, efforts were made behind the scenes to strong-arm members, and Republicans weren’t allowed to stand up for Michigan taxpayers and speak against this — violating our right to debate.”
“The governor’s latest smoke-and-mirrors proposal is just another attempt to misdirect the people and small businesses of Michigan as she puts permanent income tax relief on the chopping block,” said Beeler, R-Port Huron. “Michiganders need relief now and ongoing savings in the future.”
State Rep. Andrew Beeler on Wednesday expressed his frustration with Gov. Gretchen Whitmer for seeking to block an automatic income tax cut that would otherwise take effect this year.
