State Rep. Graham Filler of DeWitt and Rep. Luke Meerman of Coopersville recently toured AgroLiquid in St. Johns to learn more about the company and the fertilizer industry. The family business manufactures and distributes plant nutrition products across the world and hosts visitors at its IQ Hub to teach families about the agricultural industry and farming technologies. “AgroLiquid is a huge asset to the St. Johns community,” Filler said. “They’re a great local job provider and they teach thousands of kids about science behind plants and the history of farming.” From left: Rep.

Filler talks about House passage Tuesday of his HB 4724, which clarifies that Michigan’s eavesdropping prohibition on recording a private conversation does not apply to lawful security monitoring conducted by a homeowner. Rep. Filler says there were questions about the use of surveillance video in home sale situations when theft was taking place.
