Peters Statement on State of the Union

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Gary Peters (MI) issued the following statement after President Trump delivered his State of the Union address:

“Moving forward, I hope that Democrats and Republicans will work together on several critical issues: growing our economy in a way that helps Michigan workers and families, repairing and modernizing our crumbling infrastructure, and securing our nation’s Northern and Southern borders in the most efficient and cost-effective way. I’m also committed to helping close the skills gap, a challenge I hear about constantly from businesses across Michigan. That’s why I brought incoming Grand Valley State University President, Dr. Philomena Mantella, who will continue efforts that are so important at our universities to prepare students to succeed in today’s workforce.”
