Michigan’s governor has signed a bill repealing the tax in the state on essential feminine hygiene products.
The move is expected to save women in the state thousands of dollars over their lifetimes. The House Bill is half of a bipartisan package repealing the tax on products like tampons
Governor Whitmer signed it earlier this week and is expected to sign the other half today. A number of politicians from both parties and on both sides of the aisle says driving down costs on these essential products, which can cost $10 or more each month, is important for women in the state.
