LANSING, Mich. – Gov. Rick Snyder today announced the appointment of Michael Rice, of Williamston, to the State Boundary Commission.

Housed within the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, the State Boundary Commission considers petitions at adjudicative sessions and public hearings, and evaluates statutory criteria and evidence submitted on the record. The three-member board has the authority to recommend approval or denial of a petition.

"Michael brings years of strong experience to this board and I am thankful for his willingness to serve," said Snyder.  

Rice currently serves as a client education specialist for Straightline. Rice is retired from the Michigan State University Police Department as the assistant chief of police after more than 43 years of service. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Michigan State University and is a graduate of the FBI National Academy. He replaces James Stewart.

Rice will serve a three-year term expiring Nov. 15, 2017. His appointment is subject to the advice and consent of the Senate.
