Rep. Shane Hernandez, R-Port Huron; audio on final House passage of roadway charitable solicitation legislation

Categories: Audio,Hernandez Audio

Rep. Hernandez talks about final House passage Wednesday of his HB 4160, which allows a person to solicit contributions on behalf of a charitable or civic organization during daylight hours on a public street or roadway.  Although the practice is common, an Attorney General’s ruling found that it violates existing state law.  Representative Hernandez says it’s important that charitable groups and their members are not in technical violation of state code.  The legislation now moves on to the Governor.
