Senate Minority Leader Jim Ananich on Flint Officially Becoming a Promise Zone

LANSING, Mich. — Senate Minority Leader Jim Ananich (D–Flint) issued the following statement after Governor Rick Snyder signed his bill – Senate Bill 98 – to make Flint a Promise Zone:

“The Flint Promise is more than a scholarship program – it’s a reflection of our values. So many in the community have come together to prove that there is no better investment than in the education of young people. These students – Flint’s next generation of leaders – are now going to be empowered with the knowledge and experience to handle whatever the future holds.

“This day has been nine years in the making. To know that these young people will now receive a tuition-free college education should feel rewarding and exciting to all of us.”
