In a press release issued today, House Democratic Leader Sam Singh (D-East Lansing) said that the people of Michigan need to be the focus of the upcoming budgeting process.
In a press release, he said:
“It’s time for our budget to reflect the values of the people of our state and that’s why House Democrats want to prioritize investment in schools, local communities and critical programs that help our friends and neighbors take advantage of job opportunities” said House Democratic Leader Sam Singh, (D-East Lansing). “We must also overhaul the disastrous unemployment system which has been robbing men and women for the last two years. These families were due their benefits, which their former employers had already paid for in taxes to the state, and it is time they receive them. It is also important, given the current political climate in our nation, that we protect those who may be affected by a repeal of the Affordable Care Act, and ensure that every Michigan resident still has access to healthcare services.”
