Gov. Snyder issued the following statement regarding President-elect Trump's recent appointments of Betsy DeVos and Gov. Nikki Haley:

"I compliment President-elect Trump for his selection of Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education. Michiganders know the passion Betsy has for reforming education in a way that puts kids first. Betsy’s appointment will mean great things for Michigan and for children around the nation as she takes her no-nonsense commitment to empowering parents to the highest levels in Washington.
