Snyder Congratulates Legislature on Successful Year

courtesy Governor Snyder

Gov. Rick Snyder issued the following statement upon the Michigan Legislature’s completion of its 2012 session:

“I appreciate the hard work and partnership of House and Senate members this year. Many significant reforms were enacted that will provide for a safer, healthier and more prosperous future for all residents and will be instrumental in continuing Michigan’s comeback and creating more and better jobs.

“From establishing a long-overdue regional transit authority in southeast Michigan and a lighting authority in Detroit to providing tools and choices to address local financial emergencies and encouraging long-term, sustainable economic growth in rural areas by enacting a simple, fair and efficient severance tax for mining operations, we are demonstrating a meaningful commitment to the stability, vitality and safety of our cities and towns. A strong Michigan demands strong communities, and addressing these needs has been a primary focus.

“Lawmakers should also be commended for their work to eliminate a substantial barrier to job creation and economic growth by delivering much-needed personal property tax reform while protecting local governments and schools.

“It’s also gratifying to know that we are helping to improve the health and wellness of individual citizens. Our modernization of Michigan’s largest health care provider will improve access to quality health care and lead to healthier lifestyles.

“These actions this year will keep Michigan well-positioned as the nation’s comeback state. While we can all be proud of these accomplishments, much more work lies ahead. I look forward to joining with the 2013 Legislature on additional efforts to reinvent Michigan, getting it right and getting it done.”
