Chamber Applauds Governor Rick Snyder’s State of the State Address

DETROIT, January 17, 2014 – Detroit Regional Chamber President and CEO Sandy K. Baruah released the following statement on Governor Rick Snyder’s State of the State Address:

Since taking office, Governor Rick Snyder has put Michigan’s best interests before politics. He’s taken on the tough issues like Detroit bankruptcy and Medicaid expansion. He has worked to put Michigan on the comeback trail and improved the state’s business climate in dramatic fashion. We’re seeing the fruits of that on a daily basis as the Detroit Regional Chamber works to attract new business and investment to Detroit and Southeast Michigan. As the Governor indicated, there’s plenty of work yet to do. Fixing Michigan’s deteriorated roads and making Michigan the most immigrant friendly state in the nation are two issues that are critical to our state’s global competitiveness.
