Coffee Hours
MacGregor backs new laws to reduce red tape for schools

School resources should be focused on the classroom and helping our children learn and succeed.

A package of Senate bills now signed into law will reduce red tape so educators can focus on student achievement. The new laws end unnecessary and burdensome state reporting requirements that are often redundant or may even be obsolete by the submission date!

Removing these requirements means there’s less time spent on wasteful paperwork. And that means more time can be focused on duties directly affecting students and their academic performance.

Reduce Red Tape

MacGregor Co-Sponsored new law to modernize veterans homes

Our veterans have made many sacrifices in service to our country. We must make sure they receive the highest standards of care they so fully deserve.

I co-sponsored Senate legislation — now law — to establish the Michigan Veterans’ Facility Authority. Under the new law, the Authority has the ability to bond for the construction of new state-of-the-art veteran facilities. The first phase would site facilities in Grand Rapids and Detroit. Subsequent phases would locate future homes in different areas of the state. In addition, the Legislature appropriated separate funding in the FY 17 budget for improvements to the veterans home in Marquette.

Under Public Acts 560-563 of 2016, our veterans will have better access to quality long-term care services.

Business services expanded on Treasury website

The Michigan Treasury Online website has been updated to improve its internet services to business taxpayers.

Among other transactions, businesses can upload their W-2s and other wage statements, request fuel credit refunds and perform other paperless taxpayer duties online. Visit www.michigan.gov/mtobusiness for more information.

Highlights from my Facebook Page

State Senator Peter MacGregor

Today Delta Dental of Michigan provided my office with classroom tote bags full of resources to help educate students about the connection between good oral health and school success. I am excited to deliver these bags throughout March is Reading Month!

March is Reading Month

State Senator Peter MacGregor added 3 new photos — at Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum.

It was an honor to listen to the story of the "Four Chaplains" this afternoon at the Ford Presidential Museum hosted by American Legion Posts 459 Family. Since the late 1940’s the Chapel of the Four Chaplains has been telling the story of the Four Chaplains and encouraging selfless sacrifice and interfaith cooperation. Our State Chaplains have held ceremonies to honor citizens who have done exemplary service in their communities. I encourage everyone to make it to one of these ceremonies.
