My heart goes out to the family, friends, and colleagues of Michigan State Police Trooper Chad Wolf. Trooper Wolf was killed in the line of duty today along the I-75 corridor. This is a tragic reminder that law enforcement officers across Michigan put their lives on the line every day to keep our communities safe.
On top of being a beautiful natural resource, the #GreatLakes are an incredibly important source of job creation here in Michigan and play a significant role in the nation's economy as well! #BlueEconomy
Had a great tour of Ludington Pumped Storage and Lake Winds Energy Park on Wednesday with my colleague Congressman Dan Benishek. These clean energy investments are being made in Michigan without the federal government dictating them. Innovation is the key to our nation's energy future, not mandates from Washington.
Thank you to everyone who came out to today's town hall in Norton Shores. We had a good discussion on the Iran Negotiations, the legislation I have been working on in the House Committee on Financial Services, and I provided an update on the first seven months of the 114th Congress.
Reminder: Tomorrow morning from 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM I am holding a town hall meeting at Tanglewood Park in Norton Shores. If you have a question about the federal government or the topics being debated before Congress, this is a great time to ask me! http://www.mlive.com/news/muskegon/index.ssf/2015/08/congressman_bill_huizenga_to_h.html
