February Elections Eliminated
As a reminder, Public Acts 98-103 of 2015, eliminated the February election date. Therefore, the next potential election date is May 2, 2017.
Several important new laws passed in the spring take effect during July:
· Public Act 85 of 2016 establishes the CARE Act to help train and support in-home caregivers. Under the new law, hospitals are required to allow patients to designate a caregiver and develop a discharge plan to help the caregiver provide after-care assistance. In Michigan, more than two million residents help their aging family members and loved ones stay at home by providing various levels of care.
· Public Acts 87 and 88 of 2016 increase protections for pregnant women by expanding the penalties for assaulting a pregnant woman. The crime would be treated as a domestic violence crime with stricter punishment, especially for repeat offenses.
· Public Act 62 of 2016 raises public awareness about human trafficking. The law requires the National Human Trafficking Hotline number (1-888-373-7888) to be posted at rest stops and welcome centers, bus and rail stations, airports and other places in the state. The FBI worked on 220 cases in Michigan last year.
