Sen. Pavlov offers comments following the 2012 State of the State address

LANSING—State Sen. Phil Pavlov, R-St. Clair Township, issued the following statement Wednesday night after attending Gov. Rick Snyder’s annual State of the State address:

“We have strong indicators that Michigan is beginning to recover economically, and we know it is because of substantial reforms that were implemented last year. But as the governor pointed out, there is a lot of work yet to be done. I look forward to working with him and my legislative colleagues as we continue to rebuild our state.”
