July 13, 2011 - State Sen. Jim Marleau spent the day touring downtown Clarkston, July 8, sharing news from Lansing and getting some feedback from local business owners.

"I was a small business owner myself I know the challenges they face in a struggling economy," said Marleau, representing the 12th District, which includes Clarkston and Independence Township.

The senator stopped in businesses and spoke with owners and employees about new unemployment insurance to reduce requirements to pay unemployment benefits by a few weeks.

"That will make it easier to hire new employees many found it cheaper to hire temporary workers," he said.
