Sen. Gilbert did not support tax hike


Dear Editor,

After a round-the-clock session, passing the continuation budget was the responsible thing to do. It is unfortunate that the governor and some members of the House of Representatives believed the only way to solve the state's budget crisis is by raising taxes. I could not support raising taxes on Michigan families when they could least afford it.

I am pleased that the budget includes a measure that will trim hundreds of millions of dollars each year from the cost of teacher health insurance and will let school districts pool with colleges, cities, townships and counties to get cheaper plans.

Fiscal responsibility starts with controlling spending. This important measure will go a long way to helping our state recover.

Sen. Jud Gilbert, (R) Algonac
