LANSING, MI — Today, Michigan Democrats led the charge to pass the historic Lowering MI Costs bill package, the largest tax break for working families and seniors in decades, which will help taxpayers and business owners combat rising costs.
Michigan Democratic Party Chair Lavora Barnes released the following statement after the Michigan House and Senate voted in favor of the bill package:
“In just one month, Michigan Democrats have demonstrated what real leadership looks like — providing financial relief to Michiganders across our state. Unfortunately, the vast majority of Republicans were too focused on playing political games to remember the commitments they made to Michigan families on the campaign trail. Now, they will have to explain to all those who voted them into office on the promise of tax relief and fighting inflation why they refused to support legislation that accomplishes just that. And we plan to highlight their newfound level of hypocrisy every step of the way.”
