LANSING, Mich.—On Tuesday night, Sen. Joe Hune, R-Hamburg, issued the statement below following Gov. Rick Snyder’s fifth State of the State address at the Capitol in Lansing.
“Governor Snyder’s State of the State address has again pointed out the many accomplishments of our Republican-led Legislature thus far, and the work that needs to be done this year. I have always believed that state government could be more effective in serving its citizens, and I am pleased the governor is making that a priority.
“In 2015 I look forward to helping continue stimulating Michigan’s economy by joining my colleagues in cutting unnecessary spending and reducing the tax burden on the hard-working residents of our state.
“Thanks to the hard work of our Legislature, Michigan’s budget was once again balanced and passed with time to spare. While Michigan has seen an impressive rebound, there is a lot more to be accomplished.
“The goals for the 2015 legislative session will remain largely unchanged. We will continue to strive to cut wasteful spending by government, and run Michigan as efficiently as possible in an effort to save every Michigan taxpayer money. Reducing the tax burden on residents is my number one priority, and providing tax relief to the everyday hard-working individual should be a top priority of the Legislature.
“During my second term, I will continue to seek the best solutions to the challenges faced by our residents, and not simply do what is easiest and convenient. I look forward to working hard in 2015 to serve the constituents of the 22nd Senate District and the great state of Michigan.”
