In 2018, we made more progress on the Soo Locks than has been made in decades. From the end of April through the end of December, new developments have brought a new lock closer to fruition. In April, I joined Michigan Congressmen Jack Bergman and Paul Mitchell for a conversation with President Donald Trump about the Soo Locks.
Winter may never leave us in Michigan, but one thing is for sure, the old tax system is gone.
April 17 was the last day Michigan residents had to file their taxes under an old, outdated complicated tax code that had not been updated in more than 30 years.
I believe our current and former service members deserve the utmost respect for their service and sacrifice for this great country of ours. Their dedication and commitment, along with that of their families’, ensures our freedoms and should never be taken for granted.
One of the joys of serving as your congressman is honoring our current soldiers and veterans for their service to our country.
This month, I voted to give our troops their largest pay increase in six years. They make sacrifices every day to keep us safe and the raise they have earned is a small part of thanking them and their families for their service to our nation.
