Legislative Update for Week of 8/22/2022

 

Michigan Reconnect Bills: On Wednesday, August 17, the House Appropriations Committee heard testimony on HB6129 and HB6130 to make changes to the Michigan Reconnect statutes. See the summary of the proposed legislation. MCCA supports many aspects of this package but has significant concerns on the new accountability system that the bills attempt to create. MCCA will sit down with the bill sponsors and stakeholders from the business community to hopefully reach consensus on a version that would be acceptable. Stay tuned to this update for more information.
