Rep. Matt Hall (R-Marshall) promises to continue making Michigan a better place in 2020.

“Throughout my first year, I have had the opportunity to meet and work with extraordinary individuals across our communities and the state to find solutions for Calhoun and Kalamazoo county families,” Hall said in a recent column of the Homer Index. “I focused on the issues that matter most to you and your family – protecting your hard-earned money, improving your quality of life and making government more effective and accountable. We have made a lot of strides together, but our momentum is just getting started.”

Among the legislative accomplishments Mall has made over the past year include a plan that would require Children's Protective Services to confirm the safety of all children in a home within 24 hours of receiving a child abuse complaint. That plan awaits a vote in the House. 

Hall also introduced a plan to protect Concealed Pistol License holders from unfair felony prosecution if they forget to renew their license within the first year. That was approved by the House in May.

Hall also worked on ensuring military veterans receive adequate patient care and attention, implementing consumer protections for sports betting, putting an end to rising car insurance premiums, and restoring funding to a number of vital programs that was cut by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.
