Governor Rick Snyder wants more than just talk at this year’s Detroit Regional Chamber Mackinac Policy Conference, he wants action. The governor yesterday opened the three-day event saying he had began attending the conference when he moved back to Michigan in the 1990s, but eventually stopped coming, noting that for two or three years he heard discussions on regional transportation, but nothing happened. Snyder says the conference is now one of impact and is an opportunity for impact. He says he doesn’t want attendees to leave the gathering with just memories of a nice conference, but rather with plans of action. The governor also used the opportunity to urge conference attendees to seek out their state Senators to discuss the Grand Bargain for Detroit, which has cleared the state House but awaits Senate action.
