MacGregor proclaims recent Bloomberg report as positive news for Michigan’s recovery

Michigan ranked second on national economic report State Rep. Peter MacGregor recently hailed a new report that shows Michigan has the second-best economic record in the nation.

The Bloomberg Economic Evaluation of the States report recently placed Michigan’s recovery second only to North Dakota in terms of economic health, based on the criteria of tax collections, personal income, employment, home prices, mortgage foreclosures and the stock prices of public companies.

“We have been working hard to revitalize our economy and show the country that Michigan is open for business, and this rating shows this work is paying off,” said MacGregor, R-Rockford. “Michigan is coming up in the rankings, which is incredibly encouraging since many of the significant job creation initiatives don’t even go into effect until next year.”

MacGregor said Michigan must continue to implement reforms to help the economy flourish and job creation to continue.

“This is great news for our state and the reform is far from over—meaning more positive news is coming for Michigan,” MacGregor said.
