HICKORY CORNERS (WKZO) -- Governor Rick Snyder is zeroing in on an energy and environmental issues agenda, using southwest Michigan as a backdrop.

Ahead of his appearance Wednesday at the Kellogg Biological Station in Hickory Corners, Snyder told WKZO many Michigan residents may not know about programs to help them upgrade home energy equipment to more efficient models.

"We've got a program called 'Michigan Saves' that several thousand Michiganders have used already and they've saved significant dollars," Snyder said. "We want to expand that."

About environmental issues, the governor told WKZO he's concerned about invasive species.

"It's time to really ramp up our efforts and talk to the federal government and surrounding states about how we need to do a better job" fighting things like Asian Carp, Snyder said.
