Lt. Governor Garlin Gilchrist also told 6 News that the Governor will be discussing a rollback on the pension and retirement tax.
“We also are working to make sure that working families will be able to have a higher tax refund through the working families tax credit,” said Gilchrist.
State officials will also pay tribute to the victims and families of the Oxford shooting with a painting by an Oxford student.
This is Whitmer’s fourth and final State of the State address in her first term. She is up for reelection this year.
