Congressional Leaders to Discuss Bipartisan Leadership

Civil discourse in politics has given way to extreme partisanship, preventing forward progress on key issues impacting all Americans — from health care and trade reform to immigration and improving the nation’s infrastructure.

On Thursday, June 1, a panel of Congressional lawmakers will take Michigan’s Center Stage to discuss how they are working together at the federal level to advance major issues to move the country forward.

Moderated by Carol Cain, senior producer and host of “Michigan Matters,” the panel will examine how Michigan can capitalize on its strengths to build sustainable communities that provide opportunity for all of its residents. Panelists include:

  • Debbie Dingell, U.S. Representative, D-Dearborn
  • Brenda Lawrence, U.S. Representative, D-Southfield
  • Dave Trott, U.S. Representative, R-Birmingham
  • Fred Upton, U.S. Representative, R-St.Joseph

He appeared along with Carol Cain, Senior Producer/Host of CBS 62’s “Michigan Matters” to discuss bi-lateral trade between the Asian Nation and Michigan.

“I’m committed to joining hands with people of all circles in this region to promote our mutually beneficial cooperation and people-to-people friendly exchanges, and thus contribute to building a new model of major power relations between China and U.S,” he said.Automotive, agriculture and tourism are some of the areas Michigan has been touting to the huge Asian nation.

The Consult General also talks about how China sees Michigan.
