State Rep. Aaron Miller last week commended strides made by the Michigan Legislature in the first year of his second term serving residents of St. Joseph and Cass counties.
Miller, who chairs the House Committee on Election and Ethics, serves on the Appropriations Committee, where he is a member of four subcommittees.
Miller also chairs the Appropriations Subcommittee on Michigan State Police, and helped usher in 127 new troopers in the just-completed budget cycle and approved a budget that will add 150 additional by next fall.
Miller vigorously supported a bill reforming Michigan’s no-fault auto insurance. The legislation offered residents relief in the face of the nation’s highest auto insurance rates and a choice when it came to buying coverage plans. The bills advanced through the House Insurance Committee but were defeated in a House floor vote.
Through his subcommittee positions on School Aid and Education, as well as Higher Education, Miller welcomed another healthy increase to the school aid budget, putting more money in the classroom.
