Governor to Make Trade Trip to Asia

Gov. Rick Snyder says he's planning a trip to Asia in September in an effort to bring business to Michigan.
Snyder said Thursday that the trade mission to Asia follows on what he considers the success of a fall 2011 trade trip to China, South Korea and Japan.
Snyder says last year's eight-day trip led to new economic developments in Ann Arbor and Saginaw.
The governor says he will take part in an annual meeting of the Midwest U.S.-Japan Association in Minnesota in mid-September, then fly directly to China.
Snyder says details of the trip and who will participate aren't yet determined.

    He is making this trip so he can waste tax payer money like Jenny did with all her trips. I hope he gets lost or they keep him there cause we sure don't need him here.
