Throughout my time in the legislature, I’ve been proud to champion commonsense criminal justice reforms that help individuals who have made a mistake and paid their debt to society re-enter the workforce and reduce recidivism rates. I’ve spoken with law enforcement officers, prosecutors, and victim rights groups which have tremendously helped in guiding my decisions […]
Last week, I led Michigan’s newly formed bipartisan, bicameral nuclear caucus in addressing a letter to Governor Whitmer offering her our support as Michigan seeks to become the first state in American history to successfully re-power a non-operational nuclear power plant. At full capacity, Palisades provided over 800-megawatts of carbon free, baseload electricity that powered […]
The most important job of a state representative is to be the voice of their communities in Lansing. Throughout my tenure, I’m beyond proud the best bills I’ve had signed into law have come directly from Southwest Michigan residents. In my first term, I worked with local brewers to cut red tape and help them grow their […]
LANSING, MI – State Rep. Pauline Wendzel announced she has been appointed to a new House Energy Reliability, Resilience, and Accountability Task Force (ERRA) by Speaker Joe Tate. Rep. Wendzel is one of just two Republicans on the nine-member committee. The purpose of this task force is to examine the issues related to power outages […]
Last week, my colleagues and I sent a letter to US Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm. During a US Senate Armed Services Committee hearing, the Secretary made very troubling remarks in a response to a question from Senator Joni Ernst. To seek clarity for our constituents and the people of Michigan, we drafted the following letter […]
Michigan’s success is based on the power of free markets, American innovation, and the pursuit of economic growth. As a member of a fourth-generation farming family, I know firsthand the innovation and grit Michiganders must embody as we fight for stronger businesses, fewer regulations, and a more sustainable future.
LANSING, MI – State Rep. Pauline Wendzel and Senator Aric Nesbitt welcomed Miss Blossomtime and her court to the Michigan State Capitol. “At one hundred seventeen years old, the Blossomtime Festival is the oldest and largest multi-community festival in Michigan,” Rep. Wendzel said. “Blossomtime is a time-honored tradition in our community and highlights some of […]
The Legislature is working at a breakneck pace to craft a budget for the upcoming fiscal year. For the past four years, we have worked together in a bipartisan manner to create a balanced budget that reflects our state’s values and puts the people of Michigan first. As we rush towards completing the budget, my concern is that the majority party, with a trifecta and no need to work with Republicans, will spend our $7 billion surplus on programs that benefit the government rather than the hardworking people of Michigan.
Rep. Pauline Wendzel passed legislation appropriating a $900,000 grant from the Natural Resources Trust Fund to create a new state game area on the banks of the Paw Paw River in Van Buren County.
In an earlier op-ed, I wrote about the need for a measured, commonsense energy policy as the state reacts to the devastating ice storms that hit our communities earlier this year. Instead of following a reliable, well-proven and scientific approach, Senate Democrats have sent out a press release, severely lacking in detail, saying that they’re introducing legislation to create a 100% clean energy mandate in the state of Michigan by 2035.
As legislators return to Lansing after an in-district work period, I want to reflect on the state of our state and the direction in which we are headed. I believe it’s past time for the Democrat majority to put aside partisan politics and focus on what truly matters: the well-being of all Michiganders. In the […]
