MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – U.S. Congressman Dan Benishek visited the SUNNY Morning Show with Walt & Mike today as he was in the Marquette area to meet with constituents and the business community.
Congressman Benishek discussed the role of vocational education and training in the economic future of the State of Michigan and the rest of the country. According to the Congressman there are good-paying jobs in the region that focus on a more vocational training background.
Benishek also talked about the concerns about over-reaching federal regulations that are affecting small businesses in Northern Michigan and the Upper Peninsula.
The Congressman says all of the regulations and excessive expenses associated with starting and maintaining a small business today are making the whole process extremely unpalatable for the average person who is willing to take on the risk.
