      What are the challenges to increasing economic growth in Michigan?

      State Senator Tom Casperson hoped to answer questions concerning Michigan's economic growth Monday by hosting a discussion with business leaders.

      The town hall style meeting took place at the Ramada in Marquette Monday afternoon.

      Casperson says he's been trying to partner with business leaders to help find the areas where government has put unnecessary regulation delaying economic growth.

      Casperson says the process has been successful so far.

      He says new clearer standards for cleanup at old gas station sites has allowed fast redevelopment.
