Representative Posthumus explanation


Yes. Michigan needs to take a deep look at our current licensing laws across all industries and rein in the extent of its use. Not only does take a step in that direction, but also helps veterans move forward after returning home from serving our country.

HB 4667


prohibit a governmental entity from issuing a COVID-19 vaccination passport, requiring proof of vaccination status to access a public service, or imposing a penalty based on vaccination status.


Allor


Oversight

Yes. Mandatory vaccines, vaccine passports, and any effort to require proof of vaccination to receive government services flies in the face of everything this country was founded on. From personal privacy, to individual liberty and fredom of choice, the concept of vaccine passports is everything I stand against.

HB 4125


would amend Article 7 (Electricians and Electrical Contractors) of the Skilled Trades Regulation Act to allow certain work done by or for an electric energy supply agency to be completed without a license.


Howell


Workforce, Trades, and Talent

Yes. While I believe Michigan needs to significatnly reduce the extent of licensure in our state, it is important that licensure be uniform across all industries impacted, and no subsection or industry should be provided a government granted competitive advantage through the licensure process. This legislation levels the playing field by extending licensure requirements to industries that currently aren't regulated for doing the exact same work as those industries that are regulated and licensed.


yes

HB 4631

would have an indeterminate fiscal impact on public airport authorities and regional airport authorities, though revenues resulting from asset forfeitures in controlled substances cases would likely increase under the bill, since asset forfeiture would be allowed in an increased number of cases. The increase in revenue would depend on several factors (namely, the value of property subject to civil asset forfeiture), and the amount of the projected increase is presently indeterminate.


Filler


Judiciary


No. I believe our country's civil asset forfeiture laws need to be reformed throughout the country to reduce the infringement on personal liberty. Also, I believe consistancy and uniformity in law is important to maintain.

Wendzel
