Sen. Goeff Hansen comments on State of the State address

LANSING, Mich. — Sen. Goeff Hansen, R-Hart, offered the following statement Tuesday after Gov. Rick Snyder delivered his 2017 State of the State address:

“Governor Snyder did a good job tonight highlighting the many accomplishments and positive changes in Michigan over the past year while noting the need for ongoing work.

“We must continue to invest in education and implement smart reforms that empower parents and students with increased choice and flexibility to better meet their needs and future educational goals.

“The governor emphasized that Michigan’s infrastructure needs work. The Senate took the lead in adopting policies to improve and fund our roads and bridges for the long term. We must continue to work to address other persistent infrastructure needs.

“The future in Michigan is bright. Our recovery continues. I look forward to working with the governor and my colleagues in the House over the next year as we help provide increased opportunity for all Michiganders.”
