Sen. MacGregor honored as a Legislator of the Year by Michigan Manufacturers Association

LANSING, Mich. – State Sen. Peter MacGregor has been named a recipient of the Michigan Manufacturers Association (MMA) Legislator of the Year Award.

“I am honored to have been chosen as one of the MMA’s legislators of the year,” said MacGregor, R-Rockford. “Manufacturing remains one of our district’s, and the state’s, most important industries, and I will continue to work hard to ensure the industry thrives in our communities.”

The MMA Legislator of the Year Award recognizes legislators for their leadership and dedication to Michigan’s manufacturing sector and their role advocating on behalf of Michigan’s largest job-creating industry.

MacGregor was honored for his vocal leadership on tough issues affecting manufacturing’s future in Michigan.

“Thanks to Senator MacGregor’s drive to reduce health care costs, Michigan manufacturers have more resources to put toward hiring and retaining talent,” said Chuck Hadden, MMA president and CEO. “Michigan is a stronger state and its manufacturing jobs are a more attractive career option thanks to his support of job creators.”

The Legislator of the Year recipients were honored at the 2016 MMA Legislative Reception on Tuesday at the MMA Headquarters in Lansing. The ceremony was attended by manufacturers, legislators, executive branch officials and manufacturing champions and partners from across the state.
