- Excerpt:"Late in 2011, I sponsored and passed a bill to amend Michigan's 100 year old Worker's Compensation System (House Bill 5002). This bill has allowed for modernization of the state agency that runs Worker's Compensation including electronic record keeping, better transparency, and faster claims processing. "
- Excerpt:"I know that when businesses pay less in taxes they hire and retain more employees. I was very happy to eliminate the MBT as your State Representative."
- Excerpt:"I will continue to work with the Dept. of Transportation and legislatively to create cost saving reforms and institute best practices."
- Excerpt:"With every regulation comes another burden to business. The legislature in the last two years has already repealed or replaced over 400 antiquated, unrealistic, and job killing regulations. It is my hope that we can continue this trend and make Michigan have common sense in regulation. "
