“It is our duty to govern in a way that protects the people who elected us to serve and the resources that make this the Great Lakes State.”

Senator Rosemary Bayer


Rosemary's Top Priorities

Senator Bayer is dedicated to Michigan achieving a high quality education for every public school student and making quality pre-school and childcare accessible and affordable for all families. As Minority Vice-Chair of the Senate Appropriations School Aid Fund and the Department of Education, she has been a leader in bringing historic improvements and increases in funding to all of our public schools.

Preserving our land, water and air will help protect the health and safety of all Michiganders. Senator Bayer’s first piece of legislation was the Human Right to Water Act, and her first bill made into law  forced big air polluters to pay for remediation. Her work on climate change and resilience could save Michiganders billions of dollars in destroyed infrastructure, homes and businesses.
