LANSING, Mich. — Sen. Roger Victory helped lead the development of the Senate Republican 2021 priorities that were unveiled by the caucus on Tuesday ahead of Gov. Whitmer’s State of the State address.
“It was an honor to help lead the effort of putting together a comprehensive list of our priorities for the new year as part of our commitment to build a healthier Michigan for everyone in our state,” said Victory, R-Hudsonville. “Although we’re still facing significant challenges, I am confident that we can achieve positive results for the good folks of Ottawa County and throughout Michigan.
“Among the many things we need to do, we must work together to help our seniors live healthy and independent lives, encourage economic freedom, harness our homegrown talent, support our local businesses, and protect balance in state government to ensure the people have a voice in the decisions that affect their lives.”
Victory worked with Sen. Kim LaSata, R-Bainbridge Township, and Sen. Dan Lauwers, R-Brockway Township, on the list of priorities, which were announced by Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey.
The priorities are presented in three categories: Healthier Families and Communities, a Healthier Economy, and Building a Healthier Future. The Senate Republicans identified protecting Michiganders from COVID-19, protecting the lives and livelihoods of all Michigan families, and getting students back on track as some of the top issues facing the people of Michigan at the start of the 101st Legislature.
