Legislative priorities

Ken serves as the House Republican caucus chair. He sponsored a bipartisan set of new laws to help Michigan’s agriculture industry keep thriving by ensuring producers can export products. He also helped spearhead laws to strengthen oversight measures that help protect customers of insurance companies, bringing Michigan in line with the current standards. Northern Michigan is always Ken’s focus, and he has led efforts to help preserve snowmobile trails and eliminate bureaucratic mandates that threaten recreational bird feeders with criminal penalties.
