White Pine Trail

On Wednesday, June 10, several of my colleagues and I held an informational meeting with representatives of the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR), Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) and members of the public about a proposed work project to surface sections of the Fred Meijer White Pine Trail State Park.

I thank the DNR for agreeing to participate in Wednesday night's informational meeting with west Michigan residents on the department's plan to surface sections of the White Pine Trail. Inviting members of the public to come and hear a detailed presentation from the department, and to offer up questions of their own, was very beneficial and something that probably should have happened sooner. I believe it is important, when considering a project like this, to gather feedback from the people who use and maintain the trail.

Michigan legislators passed 5th balanced budget on time

The Michigan Legislature finalized the Fiscal Year 2016 budget plan that increases support for education and roads and strengthens the state's finances.

I am proud to support a 
structurally balanced budget that continues our efforts to create a positive climate for creating jobs, prepare our students for success, protect our communities and natural resources and attract job creators and tourists to Michigan. Budgets are about priorities. With this budget, we are improving the efficiency and effectiveness of state government, building on our commitment to education and putting an additional $400 million into fixing our crumbling roads.

This budget strengthens Michigan's financial future, saves taxpayers billions of dollars by paying down our long-term debts, and increases our support of all levels of education. Every school will see increased investment with this budget. We will also be supporting our students with $31.5 million for third-grade reading initiatives and directing more dollars into the classroom by investing nearly $1 billion to reduce legacy costs.

Senator MacGregor offers information on how to fly the flag

Flag Day is celebrated each year on June 14, commemorating the adoption of the American flag in 1777. Since then, our flag has been a symbol of the freedoms we enjoy - freedoms that have been protected by the courage and sacrifice of our nation's veterans.

Certainly, Old Glory commands proper attention and respect. Many people have questions on flag etiquette and I am pleased to provide some general information on my website at

State parks honor veterans with Fireworks-Free Fourth of July

Michigan is home to more than 660,000 veterans, some of whom prefer to avoid fireworks and other loud noises.

On this Independence Day weekend (July 3-5), 12 Michigan state parks will offer Fireworks-Free Fourth of July celebrations. Located farther away from urban areas that often host large local firework displays, these parks are ideal camping locations for veterans and others who prefer a quieter holiday celebration.

The weekend event, made possible by a partnership between the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency and the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, provides a great alternative when celebrating our nation's freedom. Ground-level fireworks such as sparklers, fountains and other novelties will still be permitted. Find out more, including a list of participating state parks, at
