Rep. Martin talks about the signing into law Friday of his legislation, HB 4637, that allows a township to change its name if a two-thirds majority of the township governing board approve a resolution. The resolution would then need to be approved by a majority of township voters during an August or November regular election. Twenty-eight percent of Michigan townships share names. HB 4637 is now Public Act 97 of 2021.
State Rep. David Martin today vowed to continue fighting for accountability and change at the state’s Unemployment Insurance Agency after a new report revealed the agency paid out an estimated $8.5 billion to fraudulent claims during the pandemic.
