Charelvoix, MI- United States Senator Gary Peters stopped by the Michigan Scientific Corporation’s (MSC) Charelvoix branch as a part of his RideMI motorcycle tour. Senator Peters, a member of the Democratic Party, expressed the importance of small businesses and their role in the backbone of the American economy.
The Michigan native-born offered the unique opportunity to participate in a short Q&A with members of the MSC staff after briefly touring the facilities. The importance of domestically produced goods as well as automation and the future of the automotive industries were only a few key points brought up. “Companies like Michigan Scientific are making groundbreaking discoveries and developing innovative technologies, but they need access to skilled workers in order to continue leading the way in these thrilling advances,” said Senator Peters. “I’m working to strengthen federal investments in training the next generation of engineers, designers, and researchers so Michigan and the United States can lead us into the next frontier of innovation.” Last year, Senator Peters was a key member in the writing and passing of legislation to expand educational opportunities for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) fields as well as legislation to support the development and testing of self-driving vehicles.
