MacGregor supports bill to boost organ donations

More than 3,500 people in Michigan are currently awaiting an organ transplant. Oftentimes, the transplant helps save a person’s life.

I recently supported legislation to help increase the number of registered organ donors. Senate Bill 541 would require the secretary of state’s office to ask individuals applying for a driver’s license if they would like to be added to the Michigan organ donor registry. The bill has been referred to the House for consideration.

While more than 9,000 Michigan patients have received a life-saving organ transplant in the past 10 years, the number of available organs doesn't meet the demand and the need is great.

For information about organ donation or to join the registry, visit www.GiftofLifeMichigan.org.

Jobless rate falls to lowest rate in 15 years!

Michigan’s unemployment rate declined to 4.9 percent in January, the lowest state monthly rate since June 2001. The state’s January jobless rate also matched the national rate.

Both the state’s workforce and total employment rose during the month. State officials reported notable increases in manufacturing, leisure and hospitality services and financial activities. In fact, January’s increase in manufacturing jobs continued a trend seen throughout 2015, with jobs growing in the manufacturing sector for nine of the last 12 months.



Graduation rates continue to improve

Michigan’s four-year high school graduation rate increased to nearly 80 percent for the 2014-15 school year. The upward trend continued for five-year and six-year graduation rates as well. Graduation rates are calculated by following individual students from the time they first enroll as ninth-graders and are a good way to measure school accountability.

Dropout rates also declined, continuing a positive four-year trend. Find graduation and dropout rates for schools and districts at www.mischooldata.org in the Kindergarten – 12th Grade section.

Road construction projects set

The 2016 Paving the Way state construction map is now available online at www.michigan.gov/mdotmaps. The map details the major road repairs scheduled this season on state highways and trunklines, along with the construction dates.

State construction information and up-to-date traffic information is also available on the Mi Drive website at www.michigan.gov/drive, as well as the Mi Drive mobile app, available on iTunes and Google Play.

State Senator Peter MacGregor

I enjoyed meeting with these fourth grade students from Cummings Elementary School this afternoon. They provided very informed and eloquent testimony for the Senate Education Committee on House Bill 4822. My thanks to the students, their teacher, Nathan Peltz, and Principal David Martini for the visit. These students represented Grandville Public Schools, and the people of Grand Rapids, well.

State Senator Peter MacGregor

I'm happy to have cosponsored Senate Resolution 139 to commemorate February 1st as Blue Star Mothers Day in Michigan.

Blue Star Mothers are invaluable; they perpetuate the memory of the men and women who have served our country, welcome home returning veterans, visit wounded veterans in hospitals and rehabilitation centers, assist in veterans’ ceremonies, and more.

Blue Star Mothers of America formed during World War II to support mothers of children in active service. Today there are 6,000 members of Blue Star Mothers across the nation.
