Sen. Ruth Johnson criticizes Whitmer veto of income tax cut plan

LANSING, Mich. — Sen. Ruth Johnson, R-Holly, on Friday issued the following statement after Gov. Gretchen Whitmer vetoed Senate Bill 768, a bipartisan $2.5 billion tax cut plan to reduce the state’s personal income tax rate, provide families with a $500 per child tax credit, and protect more income for Michigan’s seniors:

“The governor has missed an important opportunity to provide bipartisan relief to Michigan families struggling with record inflation under the Biden administration’s policies. When government has more money than it needs, it should always look to put that money back in the pockets of taxpayers instead of simply finding new ways to spend it.”
