VIDEO: Governor Snyder Speaks to the Detroit Regional Chamber

By Reinvention Blog | February 13, 2013


Governor Snyder spoke at the Detroit Regional Chamber luncheon on Monday about Michigan's FY2014 budget, the state's reinvention, and changing the culture in Lansing toward budgeting for the future:

"How many times have you ever seen someone in the public sector say 'We're managing for the next 20 and 30 years?' It's just like we should do at home. We're asking the question, 'Are we paying our mortgage? Are we paying those long-term debts off?' Are we being effective in all that? And shouldn't we be paying those before we get into the discussion about spending more or taxing less?

Watch highlights from his speech in the video, above.
