State Representative John Kivela Discusses “Next Michigan” Plan
State Representative John Kivela (D-Marquette)
Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – 109th District State Representative John Kivela visited The SUNNY Morning Show with Walt & Mike today to talk about the “Next Michigan” legislation he is involved with in Lansing.
Representative Kivela talked about how his bill is a companion to State Senator Tom Casperson’s bill to develop a zone encompassing Marquette and Delta Counties to increase incentives for businesses to come to the area and stimulate economic development.
The Marquette Democrat explained that the two bills are a good example of bipartisan efforts to benefit the region.
Kivela added that getting the special designation will allow for several innovative ideas to possibly be developed as the zone has two seaports, two airports and a large number of potential workforce.
The bills have both been moved through their respective chambers and are now being looked at being merged together, with a new piece of legislation that, if approved, has already been promised to be signed into law by Governor Rick Snyder.
