Michigan Treasurer urges residents to contact representatives over education legislation


LANSING (WKZO) -- State Treasurer Andy Dillon wants us to call our Congressman and urge those representatives to support and co-sponsor the Savings Enhancement for Education in College Act.

Dillon says the bill would ensure that what are called 529 college savings plans stay effective and versatile by extending credits and allowing employers to match up to 600-dollars of an employee's contribution.  He said in a statement that the plans are designed to encourage families to save money for future college expenses of their kids or grandkids.
