LANSING — Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel issued the following statement on the death of Michigan's longest-serving governor, former Gov. William Milliken.

"Gov. Milliken had an innate ability to bring people together. He was a man who understood diplomacy and the importance of bipartisanship. Michigan is a stronger state because of his leadership and ability to reach across the aisle to make the lives of our residents better. His lifetime of service was appreciated by all who knew him. I extend my heart-felt condolences to his family – their loss is Michigan’s loss."
