Governor Gretchen Whitmer delivered her sixth State of the State Address on Jan. 24, 2024. She laid out her plans to lower costs, improve education, and ensure anyone can “make it” in Michigan.

 

 “We put together a heck of a record in 2023 and we are starting 2024 ready to rock,” said Governor Whitmer. “This year let’s keep our foot on the accelerator by continuing to focus on the issues that make a real difference in people’s lives. Let’s build more housing to expand supply and lower costs, and save family caregivers thousands on their taxes. To improve education, let’s deliver a budget that expands free pre-K for all and makes community college tuition-free for every high school graduate. Finally, let’s keep bringing supply chains and jobs back home to Michigan by shoring up our economic development toolkit so anyone can ‘make it’ in Michigan. Together, we can build a brighter future and help every Michigander have a classic Michigan story.” 

"Michigan’s story can be seen in our people’s stories," said Governor Whitmer. "We are a state full of humble, hardworking people with simple dreams for themselves and their families. After one of the most successful years in our state’s history, we’ve delivered on our promises to Michiganders, ranging from record tax cuts for families and free school meals for students to safer communities and more personal freedoms under the law. I look forward to sharing my vision for how we continue getting things done so everyone can build a brighter future in Michigan.”
