News Release: MCC Comments on Governor Snyder’s State of the State Speech

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(Lansing, Mich.) — Michigan Catholic Conference President and CEO Paul A. Long provided the following comments this evening regarding Governor Rick Snyder’s State of the State speech:

“A clear indicator of the moral strength of a society is the manner by which it cares for its most needy citizens,” said Long. “Every person is deserving of human dignity, and state efforts to promote this right through poverty reduction should be pursued. Merging the Departments of Community Health and Human Services presents an opportunity for policymakers to enhance the assistance citizens need to distance themselves from poverty. By focusing on the root causes of poverty, which must include providing families with an opportunity for a quality education, the state can improve the quality of life for Michigan’s most needy and vulnerable citizens.”

Michigan Catholic Conference is the official public policy voice of the Catholic Church in this state.
