LANSING, Mich., March 23, 2020 – The following statement is from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox regarding Michigan Senator Gary Peters’ decision to join with Democrats for the second time in 24 hours to deny cloture on a bi-partisan COVID-19 stimulus aid package. This package would have provided Michigan families with badly needed relief during the unfolding crisis.
“Yet again, Gary Peters has chosen to put the interests of his party over the people of Michigan. Across our state, millions of Michiganders face uncertainty about their economic future. People are being laid off and small businesses face closing. This aid package addresses all those issues and more. The time for action is now and Gary Peters' obstruction must end.”
