On Monday, Lt. Governor Brian Calley kicked off a statewide tour to explain a plan and discuss opportunities for growth in the defense industry in Michigan. The Protect and Grow plan was unveiled at the Mackinac Policy Conference this past June and is led by the Michigan Defense Center. It includes seventeen recommendations to preserve current defense assets, missions and jobs, while fostering innovation. Recommendations include leveraging partnership opportunities between academia, industry, local government, and federal defense entities in Michigan; lead the nation in U.S. Department of Defense and state cyber operations integration; and connect veteran talent to Michigan industries.
Following Monday’s event in Battle Creek, the Lt. Governor and the Michigan Defense Center will make appearances across the state.
