About Matt Hall
Representative Matt Hall is a conservative leader in the Michigan House of Representatives, known for his work pushing tax relief, highlighting the Whitmer Administration's reckless and unconstitutional actions during the COVID-19 Pandemic, and demanding real reforms to strengthen election integrity.
For all of his efforts and legislation he got passed, Rep. Hall was awarded the Conservative Excellence Award from the American Conservative Union at CPAC 2022. Out of a total of 148 elected Michigan Representatives and Senators, Rep. Hall was one of only 8 legislators to receive CPAC's highest award. His conservative voting record earned him a 90% rating.
Matt successfully passed tax relief for small businesses and legislation which led to General Motors' largest investment in history occurring right here in Michigan. Matt's work will improve our local economy and prepare Southwest Michigan to land large, transformative manufacturing plants with high paying jobs.
Matt Hall ran for office because we needed more Pro-Trump Conservative Republicans in the State House. Hall was the first Michigan Republican Party official to endorse Donald J. Trump for President in 2016. As a Delegate to the 2016 Republican National Convention, Hall fought the Never Trumpers on the floor of the convention and made the motion that shut down their efforts to steal the Republican Presidential Nomination away from Donald J. Trump. Hall served as Donald J. Trump's West Michigan congressional district campaign chairman.
President Trump invited Matt Hall to greet him on the airport tarmac for his first visit to West Michigan after becoming President. Matt also was invited to the White House to witness President Trump's signing of the U.S. China Phase One Trade Agreement. Hall served as a Champion for President Trump's White House Initiative on Regulatory Innovation. Hall helped President Trump's administration implement occupational licensing reforms, smarter regulations, permitting reform, and reducing the volume and costs of regulations. Hall also served as a frequent local and statewide media surrogate for President Trump promoting his Administration's many accomplishments.
As a legislator, Matt's leadership roles have included serving as Chair of the House Oversight Committee, which held hearings featuring election officials and people who witnessed events at the TCF Center in Detroit. He subpoenaed physical and electronic records from Detroit, Livonia, and the state's Bureau of Elections. This led to a series of new legislation designed to improve the security of Michigan's elections. This includes requiring Voter Identification to vote; prohibiting the mass mailing of unsolicited absentee ballot applications by election officials; banning private individuals from bankrolling election administration; removing dead people from the voter rolls; and strengthening signature verification requirements.
As Chair of the Tax Policy Committee, Matt advanced an income tax cut, $500 per child tax credit, and significant tax relief for senior citizens. He also pushed through a gas tax cut. Unfortunately, our liberal governor vetoed these common-sense tax relief measures. Matt did successfully secure a small business tax into law. He was also Chair of the COVID-19 Pandemic Oversight Committee which uncovered fraud in the Unemployment Insurance system, investigated Governor Whitmer's nursing home disaster, and challenged Governor Whitmer's destructive and confusing shutdowns and executive orders.
Matt Hall is a constitutional attorney and previously worked for the Michigan Attorney General's office. He also worked in the private sector for a combat vehicle propulsion manufacturer.
