Michigan Senate and House introducing bills to repeal Pension Tax
On Thursday, both the Michigan House and Michigan Senate passed legislation repealing the tax on pensions. The Senate passed Senate Bill 1 with 3 republicans voting yes and all 20 democrats voting yes. In the House, House Bill 4001 was passed 67-41 with 11 republicans and 56 democrats voting yes. The bills will now switch legislative chambers for further consideration.
POAM was at committee earlier this week to support the pension tax repeal before the Senate Finance, Insurance and Consumer Protection committee chaired by Sen. Mary Cavanagh. POAM was the only active police union in Michigan at committee and in public support of this legislation. We will continue to advocate for this legislation until it passes the legislature and is signed by the Governor.
