Contact the Representatives listed above using the following talking points:

  • The loss of anticipated revenue totals nearly $2 billion by Oct. 2018 and would affect K-12 schools, road and infrastructure maintenance, community colleges and university students, and local governments, who are already struggling after years of revenue sharing cuts.
  • Kansas, Wisconsin, and Oklahoma have all experienced significant problems after taking similar action. In Kansas on Friday, the Republican controlled state House voted to raise taxes by $1 billion to restore vital education, infrastructure and other services slashed in the wake of tax cuts just a few years ago.
  • Michigan has been making progress after major tax cuts and spending cuts over the last 15 years. Now is the time to invest in infrastructure, our cities, our college students and others who were shortchanged for years.The amount of cuts will continue to increase over time. Eventually, more will have to be cut or other taxes will have to be raised - perhaps increasing the sales tax or creating service taxes. That is what has happened in other states.
