Tonight, employment is still at the forefront of peoples minds. In a recent Q&A Snyder told AnnArbor.com that Michigan has approximately 70,000 unfilled job openings, and Snyder will likely discuss these opportunities tonight.
Other proposals for Snyder's attention abound including lowering taxes on business equipment, investments in education and welfare reform. Some hope Snyder will reinstate taxes that helped provide benefits to welfare programs.
"Michigan has pulled the rug out from under our struggling citizens," said Eric Knott of Michigan Citizen Action, as reported in a previous article. "We call on the governor to begin restoring these cuts that are hurting our families."
