Graves Reacts to Gov. Snyder's State of the State Address

In his speech, Snyder called for increased gas taxes and vehicle registration fees to repair Michigan's crumbling road infrastructure.

Gov. Rick Snyder delivered his third State of the State address to a joint session of the Michigan Legislature Wednesday night.

In his speech, Snyder called for increased gas taxes and vehicle registration fees to repair Michigan's crumbling road infrastructure.

State Rep. Joseph Graves, R-Argentine Township, tonight made the following statement after the address:

 "Tonight the governor highlighted the progress we have made streamlining and simplifying state government for Michigan's hard-working taxpayers. Although we have made great strides, we still have work to do in returning Michigan to its full potential. The governor stressed some of these challenges in tonight's speech and though there are no easy answers, I am committed to finding long-term solutions for our residents. 

"Since taking office I have remained focused on creating a healthy economy, bringing jobs back to our state and working to increase public safety in our local communities. These will remain my top priorities and I look forward to finding common sense solutions to make Michigan a great place to live and work for decades to come."

After the pension tax now he wants to raise taxes to fix are roads. The party of less taxes has lost it's way!

Really - What has Joe Graves done? Nothing but vote along party lines. Just another "talking head." A Republican Puppet set in motion by the master Puppeteer - Dick Snyder.
