“In March, Republicans argued for a targeted approach to help in our nation's fight against COVID-19. However, Democrats in Congress insisted on a partisan $2 trillion spending bill that sent $350 billion to states and communities regardless of whether or not those communities needed the money. Those Democrats failed to put in safeguards against wasteful spending and now local elected officials are inappropriately using the money from the $2 trillion bill,” said Congressman Moolenaar. “It's wrong, and I will be working in the coming days to address this issue with legislation and protect taxpayers."

“This weekend President Biden will be one of the many visitors northern Michigan welcomes every summer and he will likely see ‘Help Wanted’ signs in small businesses across the region.
