Here is some of the important legislation just one lawmaker has already introduced this year:
- HB5598, to authorize a court in a divorce case to order either the placement of any pets with one or the other party, or that the pet be surrendered to the humane society. A court could not order “shared custody”; however the parties could agree to this if they choose. Any agreement about pets between the parties would be made enforceable under the bill.
- HB5596, to require health care facilities, or health care professionals in attendance at a birth, to test newborns for hearing impairment, or see to it that they are tested within 30 days. Also, to require the Department of Community Health to establish a program for the early detection of, and follow-up health care for, infants at risk for hearing impairment.
- HB5477, to prohibit the sale in Michigan of U.S. flags not made in America.
Oh boy, its great to be back in Lansing serving the people!
