Michigan Lawmakers Hit The Snowmobiling Trails

Posted: Updated:

Congressmen Benishek and Huizenga hit the trails of northern Michigan to highlight the outdoor economy.  

We caught up with the duo in Lake County Friday at the Chase Creek Smoke House 

The Michigan congressmen say snowmobilers and cross country skiers provide a lot of economic
activity to northern Michigan and this tour is a way to thank them.

Small towns, like Chase, depend on these snowmobilers to help keep their businesses going.  

Representative Dr. Dan Benishek says, "we want to be sure that there's government policies that allow this to continue. And make sure that our snowmobile trails stay open and that regulations don't shut them down, and make sure that the government supports this activity."

Saturday, the congressmen will make stops in Wellston, Kaleva and Thompsonville.
