Categories: Iden News,News

Rep. Brandt Iden today issued the following statement after the Michigan House approved his legislation (House Bill 4816) related to regional event centers:

“This is an important measure to help Kalamazoo County – and other locations in Michigan – continue to build on the state’s economic momentum. Conventions, concerts, and other special events are a key part of tourism and bringing people to downtown areas. Some other counties in Michigan already have tools available to fund the centers needed to host these events. This legislation simply gives municipalities the same opportunity for development that other communities in Michigan already have.”
