Rep. David LaGrand Votes for Clean Drinking Water Investments for Michigan Families

By Main Street Sentinel Staff

State Representative David LaGrand has made it clear that he considers clean drinking water a top priority for Michigan.

Representative LaGrand voted to pass the bipartisan Building Michigan Together Plan, which directs roughly $2 billion toward infrastructure upgrades needed to ensure that Michiganders have clean drinking water. The legislation, which Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed into law earlier this year, includes $325 million to replace lead service lines, $55 million to help communities remove toxic contaminants such as PFAS, and $712 million for initiatives to address storm and wastewater issues.

LaGrand, who is running for Michigan State Senate, is currently in his third term representing Michigan’s 75th House District, which encompasses much of Grand Rapids. A small business owner and former prosecutor, LaGrand served on the Grand Rapids City Commission and the Grand Rapids Board of Education before being elected to the Michigan House of Representatives.
