Automobility Day at the Capitol 2022

May 3, 2022
On April 26, MICHauto hosted its annual Automobility Day at the Capitol. Throughout the day, the MICHauto team and executives from various MICHauto member companies met with legislators and members of the Governor’s Executive Team.

“The MICHauto team is happy to return – in person – this year for our sixth annual Automobility Day at the Capitol,” said Glenn Stevens Jr., executive director of MICHauto. “At this tumultuous moment when manufacturing supply chains are being disrupted by the ongoing pandemic and a war in Europe, and the industry is rapidly transitioning to EVs, it’s imperative for MICHauto to continue to make sure the automotive and mobility industry maintains effective communication and strong relationships with our state’s political leadership.”

During Automobility Day, MICHauto also honored its 2022 Legislator of the Year, State Representative Joe Tate (D-Detroit), with a ceremony in the Capitol Rotunda.

“Joe’s leadership as a co-Chair of the Auto Caucus and ally to the industry has been indispensable these last several years. But we were especially grateful that we had his strong partnership and voice in late 2021 when we saw the passage of the $1 Billion Strategic Outreach Attraction Reserve (SOAR) fund. Whether in the U.S. Marine Corp., the NFL, or as a legislator, Joe has proven to be a true leader throughout his career. We thank him for his service and look forward to his continued partnership.”
