Every Michigander deserves the opportunity of a good paying job in
a safe workplace, high quality and affordable health care, and safe neigh- borhoods regardless of their economic status. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted how much further we must go to protect the safety, health, and long-term well-being of families who call the Great Lakes State home.
Our working families are the backbone of the economy, and it’s time for us to focus on their success because the sooner Michigan gets back to making things, the better off we will all be.
Well before our current crisis, Michigan’s workers were being sent home without the full paycheck, benefits, and overtime that they’d rightfully earned. Between 2013 and 2015, bad-acting corporations stole an estimated $429 million in wages and overtime pay from Michigan work- ers – impacting more than 2.8 million residents in our state – by misclassi- fying their employees. I introduced House Bill 4877 as part of a bipartisan package to penalize those who commit payroll fraud and hurt our workers, their families and their communities. Michiganders work harder than any- one, and I’m committed to working just as hard to ensure you’re paid the wages you deserve.
vigilant in protecting the health
and safety of our communities. Unfortunately, corporate polluters have been allowed to exploit Michigan’s vast natural resources at the expense
of the health of our families. My col- leagues and I have introduced a pack- age to hold these bad actors account- able for the harm they cause to our communities by:
• Eliminating the statute of limitations
 for the state to file claims to recover cleanup costs and environmental damage.

       • Increasing bonding requirements so companies are financially prepared for full cleanup in worst-case scenarios.
• Establishing the Responsible Corporate Officer Doctrine to allow CEOs and leaders at polluting com- panies to be held personally liable for their messes.
• Preventing corporate polluters from sitting on panels determining envi- ronmental regulations and permit decisions.
