Legislative Update

State Representative Ellen Cogen Lipton
July 6, 2012

Greetings friends and neighbors,

Welcome to the latest issue of my e-news, where I aim to update you on happenings in Lansing and in our community. During this in-district work period, I will continue to attend local events and speak with constituents at coffee hours. I hope everyone had a very happy Fourth of July holiday this week. It’s a wonderful opportunity to spend some time together with friends and family, but also to remember how fortunate we are to have the freedoms we enjoy as a country. Enjoy, and stay safe!

Protecting the Rights of Voters

Gretchen Whitmer
July 9, 2012

Friends –

Over the past 18 months, Governor Rick Snyder and the Republican legislature have passed more than 600 bills into law, one of the most aggressive legislative periods that Lansing has seen in years. It often seemed over that time that no matter how controversial a proposal has been, whether it was taking billions of dollars from our public schools, raising taxes on seniors or throwing people off of the unemployment line, the GOP has put their stamp of approval on every single one of them with barely a whisper of disagreement.

Last week, however, that unified front suffered one of its very first public blows when Governor Snyder vetoed the most controversial portions of a package of anti-voter legislation being pushed by Republican Secretary of State Ruth Johnson and Speaker of the House Jase Bolger.

Reflections this Independence Day

Rep. Ellen Cogen Lipton
June 27, 2012

I love the Fourth of July. I always participate in parades alongside local and federal officials and spend my evening with family and friends. As I celebrate with fireworks, picnics and parades, I feel great pride for the United States and Michigan. This special holiday is a day on which I celebrate our nation's independence; it is also an opportunity to renew my commitment to work together with other state and national leaders to strengthen our nation’s security and prosperity.
