The State House Bill (HB 4668) which includes the Michigan Department of Natural Resources license fee package has now been introduced and will be up for discussion on Wednesday (5/8) in House Committees.
Amy Trotter, Resource Policy Manager for MUCC provides us with the following update:
“Many of you supported the license fee increase directly through letters/testimony in the House/Senate as well as the Coalition letter. The bill has finally been introduced (HB 4668) late last week and is already up for discussion this Wednesday in the House.”
