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.

With all the massive economic, infrastructure, and social issues plaguing Michigan THIS is the thing they choose to work on? No wonder the state is such a mess.

I don’t have a problem with the law in and of itself, I think that food and medical products (including medical hygiene) should be tax free. I just question the order of importance when the lawmakers choose what to work on next.
