On June 10th, the full senate voted to pass an exemption under PA54 for police and firefighters (similar language to HB5097). Senator Pat Colbeck was instrumental in pushing this legislation through the Senate. The bill now goes back to the House for their vote. Unfortunately, legislators will be on recess for the summer. Please review the names of senators that voted yes in support of law enforcement and remember who did not. Be prepared to contact House members this fall to demand their vote on this important legislation.
