From Legislative Director Kenneth E. Grabowski:
On October 2nd the Michigan Senate passed HB 5097 (H-5) which fixes PA 54. HB 5097 will immediately become law upon its signing by Governor Snyder.
The Governor made a commitment to our membership that he would fix this mistake in law when he addressed the POAM convention in 2012. He and his staff worked very hard in overcoming opposition to get this needed correction. He has kept his word to law enforcement. This would not have possible without the efforts of bill sponsor Representation John Walsh (Livonia) guiding it through the House and Senator Pat Colbeck (Canton Twp.) spearheading it in the Senate. And a big congratulations goes to our POAM members who followed up on calls and contacts to their legislators.
