Chief Jeff Heppler of the Village of Augusta Police Department, who also serves as a Kalamazoo County commissioner, accompanies House Republican Leader Matt Hall, R-Richland Township, at the Michigan State Capitol on Wednesday, Jan. 25. Hall hosted Heppler and other honored guests from Southwest Michigan at the governor’s State of the State address.
House Republican Leader Matt Hall, R-Richland Township, on Tuesday issued the following statement after House Democrats passed legislation to repeal Michigan’s right-to-work law, forcing workers to pay union dues, and another bill to reinstate prevailing wage requirements that increase the cost of government construction projects:
“The rushed Democrat pay cut plan, which would repeal Michigan’s right-to-work law, will steer workers and businesses away from our state, when we’re already falling behind,” Hall said.
House Republican Leader Matt Hall on Thursday led the Michigan House of Representatives in approving two landmark plans to clarify tax laws and provide savings to Michigan small businesses that have endured unfair audits from the Michigan Department of Treasury.
“Democrats are rushing through their pay-cut plan to take hard-earned money from workers’ paychecks and give it to union lobbyists. Our right to work law empowers people to choose good careers without fearing they could lose their jobs if they don’t pay a union, and these protections guarantee workers job security and greater accountability over their representation,” Hall said.
