LANSING, Mich. — After listening to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s 2019 State of the State address on Tuesday night, Sen. Dale Zorn, R-Ida, issued the following statement:
“We cannot forget how far we have come in Michigan over the last eight years or take that success for granted. We created a positive environment for growth that has resulted in more than 560,000 jobs being created, renewed optimism, and the ability for us to continue to invest in critical priorities.
“We must focus on solutions that fix our roads and infrastructure, provide our students and workers with the education and skills to succeed, and protect our lakes and drinking water.
“The people of Michigan sent us to Lansing to work for them, and we have a responsibility to show them that divided government can still be effective in improving the lives of Michigan families and making our state more attractive to new talent and job providers.
“I look forward to working with the governor to build on our success and address the challenges we still face.”
