Sen. Mike Kowall comments on State of the State address

LANSING—State Sen. Mike Kowall, R-White Lake, offered the following statement Thursday after Gov. Rick Snyder delivered his 2014 State of the State address:

“I applaud the governor for continuing to focus on job growth and economic recovery. We have made tremendous strides over the past three years and I expect more good things to come.

“The world is taking notice. The top credit rating agencies have all upgraded Michigan’s credit outlook and bond ratings. People are investing. Venture capital activity in the state jumped up ten spots—the biggest leap in the nation.

“There is still much more work to be done to continue our recovery. I am eager to work with the governor this year to address these challenges, and I look forward to new successes for Michigan this year.”
