LANSING – Sen. Curtis Hertel, Jr. (D-East Lansing), minority vice chair of the Senate Appropriations Committee, has issued the following statement regarding today’s special Consensus Revenue Estimating Conference (CREC) findings and Michigan’s economic recovery amid the COVID-19 pandemic:
“We have seen the impacts of COVID-19 in every aspect of our lives over the past six months. While challenges still exist and we have a long road ahead, the economic numbers announced today are proof that our science-based strategy is working. By prioritizing the health and safety of our residents first, Michigan — led by Gov. Whitmer — has become the only state to show a growth in consumer spending over last year, and our recovery is among the top 10 in the nation. By managing this virus and saving lives, we can now build back faster than states that did not take the same precautions.”
