Sen. Colbeck hosts Michigan Aerospace Day at the Capitol

LANSING, Mich. — State Sen. Patrick Colbeck, R-Canton, welcomed representatives from the Michigan Aerospace Manufacturers Association (MAMA) and other guests to the Capitol on Wednesday in celebration of Michigan Aerospace Day.

Sen. Colbeck introduced a resolution earlier this month (Senate Resolution 120) to designate Jan. 31, 2018 as Michigan Aerospace Day in honor of the state’s heritage of aerospace innovation and manufacturing.

According to a recent PwC report, Michigan now ranks number two in the country for aerospace manufacturing attractiveness. Sen. Colbeck, who is himself an aerospace engineer, hosted a reception in the Capitol building where lawmakers met with trade professionals to learn how the state can continue to build on the policy successes that have made Michigan a destination for aerospace manufacturing and jobs.
