‘Our priorities will be key to implementing solutions’
LANSING, Mich. — Sen. Curt VanderWall on Tuesday applauded a list of 19 priorities for 2021 unveiled by the Senate Republican caucus ahead of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s State of the State address.
“We have to get back on track as a state, and for the Legislature, that means prioritizing what is most important in the new year for the health of our residents, our economy and our future,” said VanderWall, R-Ludington. “Our list of priorities will be key to implementing solutions that drive these goals.”
The priorities are presented in three categories: Healthier Families and Communities, a Healthier Economy, and Building a Healthier Future. The Senate Republicans identified protecting Michiganders from COVID-19, making Michigan a welcoming home for new and existing businesses, and getting students back on track as some of the top issues facing the people of Michigan at the start of the 101st Legislature.
The list of priorities includes 19 items that range from promoting economic freedom for hardworking taxpayers to ensuring confidence in elections. The caucus spent the past several months working to support residents and job providers struggling to make ends meet under the governor’s restrictions.
