Representative Jim Haadsma voted for billions of dollars in new infrastructure investments, and helped secure clean drinking water for millions of Michiganders.
Earlier this year, Haadsma voted with lawmakers from both parties to pass the Building Michigan Together Plan, which will provide almost $2 billion in funding for critical clean water investments, including $712 million for clean water initiatives to address storm and wastewater, $325 million to replace lead service lines, and $55 million to help communities tackle toxic contaminants like PFAS.
Haadsma is currently serving his second term representing Michigan’s 62nd district, in Calhoun County, which includes the cities of Battle Creek, Springfield, and Albion. A native of Muskegon, Haadsma has spent more than three decades as a lawyer specializing in workers’ compensation and labor law. ”
