Legislative Updates


Our Legislation
  • Senate Bill 691 — My bill amends the Agricultural Commodities Marketing Act to ease some of the auditing requirements for funds collected by commodity groups. This ensures funds collected under this act will be allocated and disbursed appropriately for marketing programs, promoting agricultural growth in our state. It passed unanimously through the Senate.
  • Expansion of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) — In honor of Sunshine Week last week, the Senate Oversight Committee, which I chair, voted on legislation to expand the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to include the Michigan Legislature, the governor, and the lieutenant governor. This move marks a significant stride towards enhancing transparency and accountability within our state government.
  • Senate Bill 702 — This legislation aligns Michigan graduation hour requirements for licensed estheticians and manicurists with new federal guidelines. Passage of this bill will ensure that cosmetology students in Michigan will be eligible for federal student financial aid.
  • Senate Bill 447 — I testified in front of the Energy and Environment Committee in support of this legislation with Amelia DeLuca, Chief Sustainability Officer at Delta Airlines. This legislation would provide for a refundable tax credit for a business engaged in the use of sustainable aviation fuel. Sustainable aviation fuel is key to decarbonizing airplanes throughout the world and allows for domestic agricultural feedstock to be utilized to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels.
