A holdover from the administration of former Gov. Jennifer Granholm is stepping down this week.
Ken Ross says he's resigning effective Friday as commissioner of the state Office of Finance and Insurance Regulation.
Democrat Granholm appointed Ross in 2008. He's continued as commissioner under Republican Gov. Rick Snyder, who took office in January.
Before being appointed commissioner, Ross served as deputy commissioner and as the office's chief of staff.
Earlier, he was a vice president of the Michigan Credit Union League and an assistant state attorney general.

    Actually, there is only OFIR. OFIS was changed to OFIR in 2008.,1607,7-154-10573_11472-189633--,00.html

    Hopefully this will mean the elimination of either OFIS or OFIR, and we can go back to paying for just one tax-dollar-sucking agency instead of two. OFIS and OFIR, like so many government agencies, exist solely by 'creating' regulations and fees that do nothing but support their existance (feeble attempts to justify their jobs at the expense of Michigan's community banks and insurance companies and agents, all of whom provide thousands of jobs for state residents).
