Government Relations Director Kent Wood is busy tracking a number of legislative proposals in Lansing. The Traverse City Area Chamber renewed its objections to proposed changes in the state’s No Fault auto insurance law because of its potential impact on Michigan’s health care providers. The Chamber and the Northern Michigan Chamber Alliance also oppose efforts to repeal the post Labor Day school start for Michigan school districts. The Alliance backed the post-Labor Day school start when it was implemented state-wide in 2005.
The Alliance is also monitoring state budget discussions and has opposed proposed cuts to rural health care services impacting Northern Michigan. Follow the Chamber Bulletin for updates or contact Wood firstname.lastname@example.org
