House Bill 5893 would remove references to these camps that are now nonexistent.“As lawmakers, we’re always focused on what more we can do to help make the lives of every Michigander better,” Rendon said. “However, sometimes less is better than more. Removing these obsolete laws cleans up our government so it can become more efficient.”HBs 5769 and 5893 now advance to the Senate for further consideration. 16May House approves Rendon bills eliminating outdated laws Categories: Daire Rendon Newslast_img
