Get Michigan Working
Michigan’s economy has a brighter future. We have been working hard to ensure better job growth within our great state, and we have delivered results. However, responsibility to you never stops. Here are a few ways I plan to continually improve Michigan’s job climate:
- Reforming Michigan’s workforce development programs to adopt to Michigan’s changing marketplace.
- Attracting job providers to Michigan by promoting our plentiful natural resources and outstanding workforce.
- Enhancing vocational education opportunities to better prepare Michiganders for the workforce.
Get Michigan Moving
Inadequate roads and bridges are unacceptable for Michigan residents to have to endure. That is why we are working to address infrastructure issues that are plaguing our state. We plan to:
- Prioritize state spending to build on last year’s additional investment in roads and bridges.
- Enact long-term cost-saving reforms to give taxpayers the biggest return on their investment.
- Identify specific shortcomings in our infrastructure system and create priorities for improvement.
A Government of the People
It is important our government operates with little, if any, duplicative and unnecessary rules to make it more effective for Michiganders. Here’s how we plan to simplify government regulations and lead to greater accountability for all taxpayers:
- Simplifying the tax code and reducing the overall tax burden to create a fair system for all to prosper.
- Respecting individual privacy and freedom by protecting personal information of legal gun owners under FOIA.
- Encouraging growth and sustainability, instead of playing favorites.
A Government for the People
It is critical our state government remains efficient and effective. We plan on streamlining the government to achieve these goals by:
- Ensuring the state’s budget is completed in full by June 1st of every year to provide our local governments, schools and job providers with measurable stability.
- Reforming the corrections budget to create more savings in Michigan.
- Applying common sense reforms that focus on effective safety measure for public schools.
