LANSING, Mich. — Sen. Stephanie Chang (D–Detroit) has issued the following statement regarding Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s proposed investments for the Fiscal Year 2019-20 budget, which includes funding for increased investment in our communities, our schoolchildren and cleaning up the state’s drinking water systems.
“Michigan needs to invest in itself, and I applaud Governor Whitmer for her commitment to our cities, our students, our health and our prosperity. Michigan’s government has let too many of its residents down time and time again by not paying close attention to their needs on issues so vital to life and the well-being of our families as safe and affordable water, the safety of our neighborhoods, and the education of our youngest children. It’s our job as elected officials to solve problems and make difficult decisions, and I look forward to continuing work in the state Senate where I’ll help ensure voices that may have been dismissed in the past will now be heard.”
