State Rep. Andrew Fink, of Adams Township, was joined Thursday by Adam and Trevor Konkinis, the surviving sons of fallen Sheriff Deputy Kevin Konkinis, at the Capitol during the annual Michigan House of Representatives 9-11 Memorial Ceremony. Legislators invited first responders and members of the military from their communities to be their guests for the service. The ceremony included the ringing of a fire bell for those who died in the line of duty throughout Michigan in the past year.
Rep. Fink talks about final House passage Tuesday night of his HB 4066, which prohibits a political subdivision from enacting any ordinance, rule, or tax relating to the use of a knife or knife-making components that are more restrictive than state law.
Rep. Fink talks about House passage this week of HB 4722, short-term rental legislation designed to provide certainty for private property owners across the state while maintaining some flexibility for municipalities over planning and zoning. Rep. Fink says a key to the issue is making sure that Michigan’s housing situation is welcoming to families.
