House Bills 4677 and 4688.
« on: May 12, 2009, 01:45:32 PM »

Hello All GLB folks,

Below is the response from my district reps. When I asked about the house bills being reviewed in the house and senate. One main concern I had was to see if the DNR ramps were going to be covered as well as the state park entry. Enjoy the reading if you choose to do so. This is where your voice is going to do the best for you.... Speak up fore or against.

Dear Mr. Laporte,
Thank you for calling Rep. Deb Kennedy's office yesterday.  I wanted to follow up regarding your questions on House Bills 4677 and 4688.
These bills would authorize an annual $10 vehicle registration surcharge ($5 for motorcycles) on non-commercial vehicles. This would replace state forest, park and boating access fees for residents.  When a citizen received notice from the Secretary of State to renew their vehicle registration, they would be asked to pay a $10 fee for one year access to state parks and state-operated public boating access sites.  One could opt not to pay, however, that vehicle could not go to a state park or state-operated public boating access site.  So, to answer your questions, the fee would be per vehicle, not per household and would cover access to state-operated public boating access sites.  If you are interested, I can mail you the amended versions of these bills, the language that is currently on the House floor.  Also, you may be interested to note that the Senate is considering very similar bills, Senate Bills 388 and 389, which are currently before the full Senate for consideration.
Please let me know if you have any further questions, or would hard copies of the bills.

Rep. Deb Kennedy's office

Mr. Laporte:

Per our phone conversation I am sending you the links the Senate website where you can find additional information regarding the Michigan parks registration proposal.

Click on Committee Information in the top menu bar. Then Minutes and testimony in the menu bar to the left. These bills were in the Natural Resources and Environmental Affairs Committee. Hearings for these bills occurred from mid April to last week. If you enter those dates all the posted information should be available for download.

Also here are the links to all the senate bills:

SB 388

SB 389

Please let me know if you need anything else.

Sen. Patterson's office

If you are wondering why there is 4 different numbers. 2 are from house Dem. and 2 are from house Rep. If both parties have what they think is a good idea they each shove a bill thru the system and they meet in the middle and become one.. at leat this is my understanding.. Please correct me if I have mispoken.
