On Thursday, December 28, Governor Jennifer Granholm (D) signed the “Emergency Powers Protection Act.”
Consisting of HB6363 and HB6364, the legislation sponsored by State Representative Scott Hummel (R-93) will establish new laws preventing local governments from confiscating lawfully-owned firearms during a declared state of emergency, as we witnessed in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina.
The bills passed overwhelmingly in the State Senate, 37-1, and unanimously in the State House, 105-0.
Please contact Governor Granholm today by phone at (517) 373-3400, (517) 335-7858; by fax at (517) 335-6863; or e-mail at http://www.michigan.gov/gov/0,1607,7-168-21992_21995-65331--,00.html and thank her for protecting our Second Amendment rights by signing HB6363 and HB6364.
