Snyder Calls For Urgency In State of State

Governor Rick Snyder delivered his second State of the State address in Lansing Wednesday night. The speech focused on his administration’s successes over the past year and challenges for the year to come. Snyder told the legislature that, despite the gains made in the past year, there’s still serious work left for all Michigan residents.

“We must reinvent our culture. We are still too negative, too divisive and too many believe our best days are behind us. We need to be positive, inclusive and confident that Michigan holds a bright future for our children and their children.”

Governor Snyder says he wants to finish key initiatives this year that he began in 2011. He told lawmakers that they need to maintain the sense of urgency that existed in state government last year.
