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 joined the majority of his legislative colleagues in approving the Unlock Michigan citizens’ initiative, repealing the 1945 Emergency Powers of the Governor Act that Gov. Whitmer used to declare an extended state of emergency during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Rep. Green talks about his HB 4838, which would prohibit voting machines from being connected to the internet from the time the polls open until the results have been tabulated for that precinct. The measure, which Rep. Green says codifies Secretary of State best practices, is currently before the full House.
