Delivering Tax Relief for Michigan

Tax Day 2018 is now behind us, and with it, the last time taxpayers will ever have to file under the old and broken tax code. Starting next year, thanks to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, hardworking families in Michigan will see tax relief across the board, a larger standard deduction, an expanded Child Tax Credit, and more money in their wallet.

All told, next year a typical middle-income family of four will get a tax cut of more than $2,000. That’s more money in people’s pockets to pay bills, invest, or save for the future. Click here to learn more about the new tax law and how it is already starting to help folks in Michigan.

Veterans Resource Fair in Jackson

Tim Walberg Jackson Veterans Fair

We had a great Veterans Resource Fair this week at the Jackson County Veterans Affairs Office to assist veterans and their families. Thank you to the many veterans organizations who participated and helped make it a success.

Combating the Opioid Crisis

The tragic opioid epidemic touches every corner of our state and country, and combating this crisis continues to be a top priority. This week, I spoke on the House floor with a group of Energy and Commerce Committee members to discuss our work on bipartisan solutions. 

Additional resources were also announced this week by the Department of Health and Human Services to help states address the opioid epidemic. Michigan is set to receive $16 million in this second round of funding. The grants were made available from the 21st Century Cures Act, bipartisan legislation I supported and helped pass in the House.

Injured and Amputee Veterans Bill of Rights

I testified before the House Committee on Veterans' Affairs this week about my bipartisan bill, the Injured and Amputee Veterans Bill of Rights. The legislation will help educate veterans with amputations and ensure they have access to high quality prosthetic limb and orthotic care. The men and women who answered America’s call to service deserve nothing less.

Supporting our First Responders

It was great to meet with Fire Chief John Clark of Delta Township this week to discuss public safety issues. I'm thankful for our first responders who serve our communities day in and day out.
