House Republican Leader Matt Hall, of Richland Township, today issued the following statement after the Senate Committee on Housing and Human Services amended a bill to make an Earned Income Tax Credit increase retroactive to tax year 2022, echoing House Republicans’ calls for immediate relief:
“House Republicans have been saying all along: The people of Michigan need relief immediately to help with the rising cost of living. We led the charge to provide relief for working families on their tax returns this year, not down the road. Democrats wanted to drag their feet and delay relief, but by standing up for the people of Michigan, Republicans are advancing immediate relief.”
Ahead of the governor’s annual State of the State address, House Republican Leader Matt Hall and Senate Republican Leader Aric Nesbitt on Wednesday called on Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to work with Republicans and prioritize helping the people of Michigan.
