State Rep. Dale Zorn issued the following statement in response to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s 2024 State of the State Address on Wednesday:

“The governor is pulling the wool over the eyes of Michiganders everywhere – but the reality is, the state of our state is bleaker than she wants us to believe.

“In the past year, the governor and her Democrat colleagues have taken actions that will increase household costs for families in coming years and reversed a permanent income tax cut that every Michigan taxpayer was entitled to under our state law. Now, she wants to offer college tuition for all on the backs of taxpayers who are already financially strained. It’s safe to say she won’t be allowing workers to keep more of what they earn any time soon, because she’s already committed that money to community college tuition.”

“Every Michigan worker needs and deserves to keep more of what they earn, especially now, as families struggle to cover household costs amid widespread inflation and rising utility costs. We needed to hear more from the governor about her plans to reduce basic expenses for Michiganders in 2024.”
