VIDEO: Peters Has Busy First 4 Months as Michigan’s New Senator

WASHINGTON, D.C. – It’s been four months now since U.S. Senator Gary Peters (MI) was sworn in to serve Michigan in the Senate. During that time, Senator Peters has been busy hearing directly from Michiganders and focusing on commonsense, bipartisan policies to create good-paying jobs, strengthen our economy and take care of our nation’s veterans and servicemembers.

Watch the video below to see what Senator Peters has been up to over the last four months:

Senator Peters held an Economic Listening Tour to meet with Michigan businesses, educators and workers, hearing from different sectors of the state’s economy about how he can best represent them in Washington. He introduced his first bill, a bipartisan effort to save taxpayer dollars on repair of government vehicles by encouraging the use of remanufactured automotive parts. Peters’ bipartisan bill to help medical professionals identify and prevent human trafficking passed the Senate last month.

Peters serves on the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee; Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee; Small Business and Entrepreneurship Committee and the Joint Economic Committee.
