Michigan now has an "Open For Business" sign on our borders. No longer are job providers looking at opportunities in other states or countries. Michigan has dramatically improved our tax and regulatory environment, and today, our unemployment rate is at 8.3%, the lowest rate since July 2008. This is real progress, however there is still more work to be done.
Michigan's regulatory structure has seen reforms in 2011-2012, however we need to continue that work. Government needs to get out of the way of job providers.
