Horn MiThrive Initiative receives final approval from governor

SAGINAW, Mich. — State Sen. Ken Horn was joined by legislative colleagues and community leaders from across the state on Thursday as Gov. Rick Snyder signed legislation that will help revitalize communities throughout Michigan.

“I’m pleased that with this legislation, we’re able to give local governments a tool that they’ve been asking for to assist with the redevelopment of difficult-to-develop sites scattered throughout the state,” said Horn, R-Frankenmuth. “I’m looking forward to seeing the transformation that is going to take place in communities large and small because of this legislation.

“I’d like to say a special thanks to the MiThrive Coalition members from Macomb to Marquette who worked tirelessly to see this initiative signed into law.”

Senate Bills 111-115 will be Public Acts 46-50.
