Rep. Reilly introduces plan to give property owners more options for ‘No Trespassing’ markings

Categories: News,Reilly News

State Rep. John Reilly today introduced a plan to provide Michiganders more options to protect their private property.

The plan would allow property owners to use purple paint on trees or posts to designate “no trespassing” zones.

“This is a simple change that would relieve landowners from constantly having to replace their posted signs, which tend to fall apart over time and are subject to vandalism,” Reilly said. “This plan is growing in popularity throughout the country, with Pennsylvania signing the same legislation last year. It started in Arkansas in the late ’80s and is now a law in 11 states, so I think it’s time for Michigan to get on board with this.”

House Bill 5590 has been referred to the House Natural Resources and Outdoor Recreation Committee for consideration.
