Cox Statement on the Budget Passed by the Legislature 


LANSING, Mich., September 24, 2019 – The following statement is from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox regarding today’s passage of the budget by the state legislature.  

“I applaud Speaker Chatfield and Majority Leader Shirkey for coming together and passing a budget that adds millions of dollars in new road and education funding without raising taxes on hardworking Michiganders. I encourage Governor Whitmer to abandon her ridiculous 45-cent gas tax and sign this budget which would keep Michigan’s government open.”
