Rep. Tom Leonard, left, and his legislative aide, Dan Simon, join Lt. Gov. Brian Calley as he signs Public Act 67 of 2014 into law. The bill, which was introduced by Leonard, was part of a legislative package removing the words “retarded” and “retardation” from Michigan statute, a move Leonard says will promote respect for all.
