After Gov. Gretchen Whitmer claimed she accomplished much for small businesses throughout 2021, state Rep. John Damoose of Harbor Springs today issued the following statement highlighting the governor’s record of executive orders and vetoes that hurt small businesses:
“Gov. Whitmer’s self-aggrandizing statement treats small businesses as a political prop. Her actual accomplishments for them this year involve a lot of restrictions and rejections. She kept burdensome capacity limits in place until June, and she repeatedly vetoed legislation to help hurting small businesses — from tax relief to compensation for unconstitutional fines. The governor’s 2021 track record is one of blatant disregard for local job providers.”
In a bipartisan vote, the House Committee on Natural Resources and Outdoor Recreation today approved state Rep. John Damoose’s plan to allow rental businesses to register their canoes and kayaks permanently.
State Rep. John Damoose and the Michigan House of Representatives today approved a bipartisan plan to serve children better by bringing much-needed changes to the state’s foster care and adoption systems.
Rep. Damoose talks about House passage Tuesday evening of a $2.5 billion tax cut for Michigan residents, saying that the ultimate in fiscal responsibility is letting people spend their money for themselves.
