During the first week of the 2022 legislative session, state Rep. Andrew Beeler announced he completed his first year in the Legislature with a perfect voting record.
The legislator from Port Huron did not miss any House floor votes during the 2021 session.
“Each time I voted during last year’s session, I voted for the residents of Michigan’s Thumb,” Beeler said. “I will keep looking out for the people of our community with the votes I cast and the policies I advocate in my second year representing Sanilac and St. Clair counties.”
Beeler took office as state representative in January 2021. He represents the 83rd House District, which includes all of Sanilac County, and Burtchville Township, Fort Gratiot Township and the city of Port Huron in St. Clair County.
In the House, Beeler is the majority vice chair of the Committee on Military, Veterans and Homeland Security. Additionally, he serves on the committees on Education, Energy, Health Policy and Tax Policy.
One of the 10 bills Beeler introduced in 2021 was signed into law: House Bill 4569, now Public Act 7 of 2021, extended last year’s deadline for filing city income tax return, in conjunction with other legislation extending the state filing deadline.
Two of Beeler’s bills have passed the House and are now before the Senate for consideration. HB 4345 would help Michigan residents save on health insurance costs if they buy a prescription drug from a pharmacy out of their insurer’s network. HB 5097 would prohibit any form of race or gender stereotyping in public school curriculum.
Beeler also introduced two resolutions last year, both of which were adopted by the House.
Beeler said he encourages constituents to contact him so he can represent them well. Residents in the 83rd District can call 517-373-0835 or email AndrewBeeler@house.mi.gov to contact his office.
So many of you have contacted me with concerns about fees being charged by the UIA for lawfully received benefits over the last year. The House is taking action to ensure this is made right. Learn more about what we’re doing in the video!
Rep. Beeler says he is troubled that the Michigan Board of Education this week approved a resolution opposing his HB 5097, which would ban racial and gender stereotyping in Michigan classrooms. The legislation passed the House in early November, and Rep. Beeler says he wonders what part of racial and gender stereotyping the Board endorses.
State Rep. Andrew Beeler, of Port Huron, on Tuesday testified before the House Committee on Regulatory Reform in support of his bipartisan plan to help Michigan drivers by updating guidelines and authorizing additional options for vehicle loan and lease protection.
