Whitmer Must Sign Bill and Give Money Back To Taxpayers Amid Record-Breaking Inflation and Billions in Surplus State Revenue

LANSING, MI – The Michigan Freedom Fund today praised members of the state House of Representatives for passing bipartisan legislation to cut income taxes for four million Michigan taxpayers. While inflation is at a 40-year record high and prices continue to rise, the state government has billions of dollars in surplus revenue.

The legislation would lower the state’s income tax rate from 4.25% to 3.9%.

“We’re proud of the leadership in the state House for making tax cuts a priority to help four million Michigan taxpayers who are struggling with rising prices as a direct result of the Whitmer-Biden agenda,” said Tori Sachs, executive director of the Michigan Freedom Fund. “State government has billions in surplus revenue, and it’s time to give this money back to hardworking taxpayers. Governor Whitmer must put away her overused veto pen and sign this bill.”

Once the state Senate concurs, the legislation will go to the governor for consideration. Governor Whitmer has faced criticism for vetoing more bills than any Michigan governor since 1953.
