Rep. Phil Green will be a member of a special temporary committee designed to help shape policy priorities for Michigan House Republicans in the upcoming 2021-22 legislative session.
Green, of Millington, was appointed by Speaker-elect Jason Wentworth to serve on the Policy Action Plan Committee. The panel will gather top priorities and policy ideas from returning and incoming legislators.
“I am proud to serve on this committee and ensure residents of the Thumb have a seat at the table when decision-makers determine the road ahead for the state of Michigan,” Green said. “This is a challenging and critical time. It’s more important than ever that you are well-represented when state leaders discuss public health, the economy, education and other shared top priorities.”
The Policy Action Plan Committee will be chaired by Reps. Graham Filler of DeWitt and Steve Johnson of Wayland.
Rep. Green says he is calling on the Governor to immediately end the payout of an additional $300 a week in unemployment from the federal government. Rep. Green says many local and family businesses in the Thumb and across the state are having to shut down because they lack staff.
State Rep. Phil Green, of Millington, today introduced a measure to prohibit voting machines from being connected to the internet from the time the polls open until the results have been tabulated for that precinct.
