LANSING, Mich. — Sen. Ed McBroom, R-Vulcan, released the following statement on Wednesday in reaction to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s State of the State address.
“I look forward to hearing more details about Governor Whitmer’s proposals that she shared during her speech. My hope is that the executive and legislative branches can work together, not to grow government, but to have government serve our citizens and truly be responsive to their needs.
“I have repeatedly heard from the people of the Upper Peninsula that we need to work on state regulations to ensure they are common sense and reasonable, not burdensome. We need to make a difference for people, by lowering auto insurance rates, and ensuring that they remain healthy and happy in the state they love, and that their kids can do the same.
“We need to ensure we are using our state’s competitive assets, not just preserving our beautiful state for tourists only to the point of no one being able to live and work here. These are goals we can achieve if we work collaboratively, and I look forward to doing so.”
