The Michigan Legislature is expected to wrap up this week, so this bill could move very quickly. Michigan residents are urged to contact their Senator and ask them to OPPOSE House Bill 5095 and its companion Senate Bill 560 as currently written. Visit the Michigan Legislature web site for a full contact list for the Senators, or click here to find the contact information for your State Senator. When contacting them, be sure to mention you are a Michigan resident (or constituent when contacting your Senator).
