LANSING—The Michigan League for Public Policy issued the following statement on the MI Vacc to Normal plan announced today by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. The statement can be attributed to League President and CEO Gilda Z. Jacobs.
“Throughout the pandemic, Gov. Whitmer has strived to balance safety and science with residents’ and businesses’ economic security, and today’s plan effectively addresses all of those concerns together. The League has been proud to be a part of the Protect Michigan Commission and our state continues to make good progress in vaccinations, but we need to keep those efforts up and build on that success. We all want things to get back to normal, but we all have to do our part to make that happen by getting vaccinated and continuing to follow appropriate safety guidelines. Getting our kids back to school and people back to work will have a tremendous ripple effect for all of our individual households and families as well as our communities, our state budget and our economy as a whole. The ‘MI Vacc to Normal’ plan outlines clear steps tied to specific benchmarks, and in doing so, it gives us all hope and a goal to strive for together.”
