MIGOP Statement on conclusion of the Democrat Debate   LANSING, Mich., October 15, 2019 – The following statement is from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox regarding tonight’s Democrat Primary Debate: "Yet again the 2020 Democrats support for reckless socialist schemes was on display tonight. Their policies will destroy Michigan’s thriving economy and make our country weaker.

Whitmer Puts Partisan Politics Ahead of Michigan's Students  LANSING, Mich., October 7, 2019 – The following statement is from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox regarding Governor Whitmer's massive $166 million veto to school aid and higher education funding. "Instead of 'building bridges' as she promised, Governor Whitmer decided to pave over the futures of thousands of Michigan students to try and get her 45-cent gas tax hike. Her veto of $166 million in education funding is unacceptable. Thousands of students may be forced out of college and several school districts may close. It is horribly disheartening that our children's educational opportunities have to suffer, all so that ourgovernor can try and prove a point." According to MIRS, the following are the line-item vetoes from the School Aid Budget: - $35 million by eliminating the per-pupil foundation increase for charter schools - $16 million in Career and Technical Education training equipment - $15 million for summer school reading programs for those not reading at grade level by the end of the 3rd grade - $10 million for a statewide program that helps security upgrades at schools with such things as a panic button - $9.2 million for computer-adaptive tests that are billed as increasing reading proficiency for kids in grades K-3 so they can read at grade level by the 4th grade. - $7 million for rural districts, of which $957,300 goes to Drummond Island and Mackinac Island schools - $3 million for the Michigan Education Corps for pre-K reading. - $3 million to help English language learners - $2.5...

Gretchen Whitmer Pure Partisan

Gretchen Whitmer: Pure Partisan LANSING, Mich., October 1, 2019 – Today the Michigan Republican Party lunched a new web video “Pure Partisan” in response to Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s reckless use of her line item veto power. Amongst the 147 items vetoed by the Governor was an additional $375 million specifically targeted for road and bridge repairs. In addition, Whitmer made cuts to funding to Public Charter Schools, Rural Hospitals, Prisons, Law Enforcement, and funding for Children with disabilities amongst many other cuts.  “In a desperate attempt to get Republicans to submit to her highest in the nation 45-cent gas tax increase, Governor Whitmer is slashing funding for many of Michigan’s most vulnerable residents. Children, veterans, and the disabled should never be used as political pawns. In an effort spread the word about Governor Whitmer’s reckless abuse of the budget process, the Michigan Republican Party is happy to announce our new web video calling out Whitmer for what she truly is; A Pure Partisan. “Pure Partisan” can be found here More >

Whitmer Cuts Funding for the “Damn Roads”   LANSING, Mich., September 30, 2019 – The following statement is from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox regarding Governor Whitmer’s $375 million in road funding cuts from the 2019-20 state budget. In addition, Whitmer used her line-item veto power to cut 147 items from the budget. It’s even been reported that Whitmer was so zealous with her line-item veto that she accidently cut funding from both the school aid and Health and Human Service budgets, requiring the legislature to fix her mistakes and restore the funding. “Tonight, Governor Whitmer showed that she is willing to use the people of Michigan as pawns in her fight for higher taxes and bigger government. Whitmer governs with such reckless abandon that she needed a ‘do over’ after cutting critical funding for education and health services by mistake.  Gas Tax Gretchen is clearly more interested in raising taxes than fixing a single mile of our state’s crumbling roads, and she’s willing to throw the people of Michigan under the bus to get her way.”   More >

Instead of spreading a false narrative that seeks to reverse the 2016 election, Jon Hoadley should focus ensuring that Michigan’s government does not shut down and that he’s meeting the needs of his constituents."   More >
