Sen. Moss Awarded as 2020 Economic Development Champion

LANSING — Sen. Jeremy Moss (D-Southfield) was announced as the recipient of the 2020 Legislative Economic Development Champion Award from the Michigan Economic Developers Association.

“It’s an honor to be recognized by the Michigan Economic Developers Association for the hard work we’ve achieved together to boost the local economies in Michigan, especially in the Southern Oakland County district I represent,” Sen. Moss said. “Detroit’s inner-ring suburbs thrive when we support thoughtful development projects that promote renewal and reinvention. With the help of the association, we have been able to pass and enact legislation that will help our communities, neighborhoods and small businesses grow — one project at a time.”

This term, Sen. Moss was the lead sponsor of Senate Bill 319 (now Public Act 3 of 2020) which expands Michigan’s successful Neighborhood Enterprise Zone Act by providing homeowners with much-needed tax relief as they invest more in their property to revitalize distressed neighborhoods.

“Senator Jeremy Moss has worked diligently on a bipartisan basis to promote economic development in Michigan. Among his many legislative accomplishments, he sponsored the update to the Neighborhood Enterprise Zone Act (Public Act 3 of 2020), which is critical to promoting economic development in our urban areas. The Michigan Economic Developers Association is very pleased to honor Senator Jeremy Moss as our 2020 Legislative Economic Development Champion,” said James McBryde, President and CEO, Middle Michigan Development Corporation.

Sen. Moss serves as the Minority Vice Chair of the Senate Regulatory Reform Committee and is a member of the Senate Economic and Small Business Development Committee and the Senate Local Government Committee.
