Along with hundreds of other state officials, Michael Finney - CEO of the Michigan Economic Development Corporation - spent a few days last week at the Mackinac Policy Conference on Mackinac Island. The annual gathering offers decision-makers from the public and private sectors a chance to connect with each other and learn more about the issues facing the state, along with possible remedies.

After the conference, Current State host Mark Bashore caught up with Finney to reflect on the conference and what was and was not covered during it.
