I believe that, in order for Michigan to comeback as the economic engine of the world, taxes of all kind must be kept low. Michigan's competitiveness is dependent on its families keeping what they earn for a more stable life and its businesses' ability to expand.
I have long faught against needless and burdensome taxes. This includes my fierce opposition to the new pension tax. I have been an early advocate for property tax reform. I have introduced and passed Public Act 89 of 2013, which cuts sales taxes for people trading in their used cars and boats. I also introduced Senate Bill 327, which bans the Michigan Department of Treasury and all other tax collectors from using quotas. This legislation ensures that tax laws and rules are applied equally to all taxpayers so the department can take only what it legally can instead of what it wants.
