Tuesday, May 14th, 2024
I voted NO on HB 5147 (Rep. Rheingans) Would eliminate the sunset on the Higher Education Authorization and Distance Education Reciprocal Exchange Act, which was previously extended under HB 4982. EXPLANATION: Keeping the sunset in place would provide an opportunity for legislators to review the efficiency of the government run program and make adjustments, or let it expire, if deemed necessary.
PASSED: 80-27

I voted NO on SB 415 & 416 (Sen. Klienfelt) Would allow a microbrewer licensed by the Michigan Liquor Control Commission (MLCC) to obtain a purchaser’s MLCC license number as identifying information for the purpose of claiming sales and use tax exemptions. EXPLANATION: Allowing a streamlined ability for only certain industries to avoid paying taxes is a form of picking winners and losers and fails to support Michigan’s small businesses equally.
PASSED: 101-6, PASSED: 101-6

Wednesday, May 15th, 2024
I voted YES on HB 5462 (Rep. Markkanen) Would designate a portion of Highway M-26 in Adams Township (Houghton County) as the “Wesley Vietti Karna Memorial Highway.” EXPLANATION: This highway naming allows us to express gratitude and appreciation for Wesley Vietti Karna for his service to our nation and does not use taxpayer dollars to do so. After World War II, Karna received the purple heart for his service.
PASSED: 107-0
