ANN ARBOR, Michigan – The Michigan Municipal League is issuing the following statement about House Bill 5054, that was passed in the House Appropriations Committee this morning. The statement can be attributed to League CEO and Executive Director Dan Gilmartin.
“Today marks a moment of great leadership and investment for the people of Michigan and the communities they call home. Representatives Thomas Albert, R-Lowell, and Matt Hall, R-Marshall, are to be commended for spearheading this bold action, which would significantly improve the capacity of all Michigan communities moving forward.
“The economic capacity and strength of our ‘main street’ communities is at the core of a vibrant Michigan. Thriving cities lead to strong regional economies and regional prosperity contributes to a healthy state economy. The action taken by the House Appropriations Committee today to pass HB 5054 strengthens the state at its very heart – our local communities. We thank Rep. Albert and Rep. Hall for their leadership and look forward to working with them and others to equitably help all Michigan communities and secure passage of this important legislation.”
