Sen. Peters Rides Through McBain on #RideMI Motorcycle Tour

U.S. Senator Gary Peters is making his way around Northern Michigan on his #RideMI Motorcycle Tour.

Peters stopped in McBain at the John A. Biewer Lumber Company to promote sustainable use of wood.

Peters also touched on his Timber Innovation Act that encourages innovative uses for wood as construction material.

He says the lumber industry is vital in Michigan.

“Well lumber is important as a natural resource and we have an abundance of it. We can harvest it like you would harvest any other crop if you manage it properly. This is where it happens and it comes from Michigan. Michigan has a long history of being a lumber state and we can continue to do that,” Senator Peters said.

Senator Peters will continue his #RideMI tour Friday in Lake and Mason counties.
