Hune comments on State of the State address
LANSING, Mich.—On Wednesday night Sen. Joe Hune, R-Hamburg, issued the statement below following Gov. Rick Snyder’s State of the State address.
“Governor Snyder’s State of the State address has painted a clear picture both of our accomplishments thus far and what he expects in 2013. For the third year in a row, progress was reported.
“Reinventing Michigan has been a top priority for the Legislature and has resulted in the 6th fastest-growing gross domestic product in the country. While Michigan has seen an impressive rebound, there is a lot more work to be done.
“The goals for the 2013 legislative session will not change. We will be focused on the most efficient and responsible means by which to operate our government and hope to improve on the more than $2,000 we saved each Michigander by ushering in retirement reform, as well as the nearly half a billion dollar increase in our Rainy Day Fund
“Michigan is well on the way to becoming an exemplary model for other states in our great nation and I believe with Governor Snyder’s leadership we can continue to make Michigan the poster-child for other states.”
