LANSING— Sen. Darwin Booher, R-Evart, welcomes Lake-Osceola State Bank Chairman and CEO Deb Smith-Olson, left, to the Michigan Capitol. Smith-Olson was the guest of Booher for Gov. Rick Snyder’s 2013 State of the State address.
During the address, the governor called for creating a new Department of Insurance and Financial Services.
“As a former banker and chair of the Senate Banking and Financial Institutions Committee, I am intrigued with the governor’s idea,” Booher said. “I am hopeful that this new department will benefit both Michigan consumers and the industry with more streamlined oversight and positive advocacy for a sector that is growing and creating good Michigan jobs.”
