The Michigan Retailers Association last week honored state Rep. Mark Tisdel as a Legislator of the Year for 2022.

The association, which represents retailers of all sizes in Michigan, recognized Tisdel, R-Rochester Hills, and five other lawmakers for their work last year passing legislation to crack down on organized retail crime. Tisdel was the lead sponsor of a bipartisan law to establish transparency requirements for third-party online sellers. The change was designed to help catch thieves who resell stolen goods online.

“Michiganders visit our local retailers to buy food, hygiene products, furniture, electronics and more, and I’m pleased to be recognized as a Legislator of the Year by the Michigan Retailers Association,” Tisdel said. “It was my privilege to work with the retail industry on my bipartisan law to promote transparency, protect online shoppers, and punish thieves who try to profit on stolen retail merchandise.”

The online seller transparency requirements, contained in Tisdel’s House Bill 5487, were signed into law in July 2022.
