Governor Whitmer’s fall priorities include

  • A 100% clean energy standard
  • Paid medical and family leave
  • Removing additional barriers to abortion services
  • Establishing protections against election subversion
  • Lowering the cost of prescription drugs
  • Codifying Obamacare protections into state law

“What’s next on the fall agenda for Michigan is the health of our people, the health of our planet, the health of our economy, and the health of our democracy,” she said.

By implementing paid leave policies, Whitmer aims to make it easier for small businesses to attract and retain employees.

She asserts that Michigan could transition its energy sector toward sustainability without significant sacrifices, all while advocating for incentives that promote energy efficiency. Read more
