LANSING, Mich. — After listening to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s 2022 State of the State address virtually Wednesday night, Sen. Dale Zorn, R-Ida, issued the following statement:
“It’s about time that the governor has gotten on board about the need for tax relief — especially considering the terrible damage her actions had on hundreds of Michigan family businesses during her unilateral shutdowns.
“I have been calling for a repeal of the pension tax for years, and I look forward to working with the governor and my colleagues to get much-needed retirement income tax relief for our seniors.
“We can work together to improve our state. Last year, we found agreement on innovative tools to help attract and create good jobs in Michigan and pass a balanced state budget that included record funding for our schools that finally achieved the goal of providing every school district the same amount of minimum per-student foundation allowance.
“I am committed to building on that foundation as we work to improve our state and the lives of everyone in Michigan.”
