Whitmer partied where?

Are you ready for the big game tomorrow? Thankfully, Whitmer isn’t officiating, because there would be a “face mask” called on every play.

Whitmer mandate jokes aside, we have some important topics we’re covering in today’s Frontlines of Freedom update.

  • Whitmer Parties in DC While Ignoring Benton Harbor Crisis
  • Redistricting Commission Keeps Citizens In the Dark
  • Scholarships Pass in Legislature to Let Michigan Kids Learn
  • Short-Term Rentals Bill a Long-Term Win for Property Rights
  • News You Don’t Want To Miss

WHITMER PARTIES IN D.C. WHILE IGNORING BENTON HARBOR CRISIS

Instead of distributing bottled water in Benton Harbor – or looking families in the eye to explain why she failed for years to help – Governor Whitmer was caught on video breaking covid rules (again!) in Washington, D.C. at a swanky upscale bar.

Our team at the Michigan Freedom Fund launched a new ad this week demanding answers about Whitmer’s failure to address the lead water crisis in Benton Harbor.

REDISTRICTING COMMISSION KEEPS CITIZENS IN THE DARK

Michigan’s Redistricting Commission was sold to voters as a way to peel back the mystery behind redistricting decisions and inject transparency into the process. This week, they broke that promise - and likely violated Michigan’s Constitution.

On Wednesday, the commission went into closed session, covered the windows with paper, and kicked reporters out of the room as they discussed memos that would shape their decisions.

This is not what transparency looks like. What are they hiding? The public deserves answers. You can send them a public comment demanding transparency by clicking here. 

LEGISLATURE VOTES TO LET MICHIGAN KIDS LEARN, BUT WHITMER SAYS SHE'LL VETO

Lawmakers in the Michigan State House and Senate voted this week to let Michigan students learn. The bills would create Student Opportunity Accounts, allowing taxpayers to invest directly in the education of kids through state-approved non-profit organizations.

These accounts would benefit more than a million Michigan students, and provide crucial support to kids struggling with learning loss in the aftermath of Governor Whitmer’s school shutdowns. They provide parents with greater flexibility and students with access to tutors, Wi-Fi and laptops, textbooks, mental health services, and more, 

We encourage Governor Whitmer to do the right thing, and sign these bills into law.

SHORT-TERM RENTALS BILL A LONG-TERM WIN FOR PROPERTY RIGHTS


The state House of Representatives has demonstrated again a willingness to lead where the governor refuses. Earlier this week they passed important new legislation to protect the property rights of every resident in the state and to stop politicians from banning the use of their homes to generate a little extra income as a short term rental.
