Snyder Fulfills Over 75 Percent Of Promises In State Addresses

Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (WLNS) - A report in the Detroit Free Press analyzed 67 pledges Governor Rick Snyder made in his 3 prior state of the state addresses and his track record is pretty strong.

The paper found 76 percent of his promises have either been delivered or are underway and ongoing.

In his three years, the governor has made good on promises to eliminate the Michigan business tax and create a new emergency manager law. He also said "job number one is jobs," but that is a work in progress.

It's true Michigan's unemployment rate has dropped since he took office, but it still remains among the highest in the nation.

One thing the governor thus far has failed to deliver was a promise to use $1 billion to fix Michigan's roads and bridges, something he suggested in 2012, but still hasn't accomplished.

Snyder is scheduled to give his State of the State address Thursday night at 7p.m. 6 News will carry a live stream of the event.
