The Helmet Bill
SB-291 was passed today at around 12:30. To the credit
of the board members there and our lobbyist Noel Laporte
the bill was saved from a barrage of attempts for
amendments to bump the PIP requirement back up to
$100,000.00. In the end the Republican leadership, Lt.
Governor, and 24 Senators got the job done.
Brandenburg, Casperson, Caswell, Colbeck, Emmons,
Gleason, Green, Hildenbrand, Hopgood, Hune, Hunter,
Jansen, Johnson, Jones, Kowall, Meekhof, Pavolov,
Richardville, Robertson, Rocca, Smith, Walker, Young.
Gregory, Hansen, Hood, Kahn, Marleau, Moolenaar, Nofs,
Pappageorge, Proos, Schuitmaker, Warren, Whitmer.
