MACKINAC ISLAND (WKZO) -- Jeb Bush says it looks to him that Michigan's economy is headed forward after years of recession.  The former Florida governor and rumored 2016 Republican presidential candidate delivered the keynote address Wednesday at the Detroit Chamber's Mackinac Policy Conference.

Bush said the passage last year of right-to-work laws will help Michigan compete with Indiana and with southern states as the auto industry continues its recovery.  He also spoke about the need for comprehensive immigration reform, calling it vital for "sustained economic growth."
