MacDonald supports 2021 Senate Republican priorities

LANSING, Mich. — Sen. Michael D. MacDonald supports a list of 19 priorities for 2021 unveiled by the Senate Republican caucus on Tuesday ahead of Gov. Whitmer’s State of the State address.

“We are beginning the new year facing old challenges, yet I am confident that we can come together to improve the health of our state, our economy, our communities and our families,” said MacDonald, R-Macomb Township. “My main priority is to do my best to improve the lives of the hardworking people of Macomb County. As part of that goal, I am focusing on protecting the lives and livelihoods of our families and standing up for a balanced state government where the people have a voice.

“We also need to work together to restore the public confidence in our elections, boost and improve access to mental and physical health care resources, support our local businesses and attract new jobs and opportunities to our state.”

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, making Michigan a welcoming home for new and existing businesses, and getting students back on track as some of the top issues facing the people of Michigan at the start of the 101st Legislature.
