I am thankful for the opportunity to serve as your state representative. As we begin 2022, I wish you and your family a healthy and happy New Year. The pride I take in our community is the reason I serve in the state Legislature. I strive every day to serve each and every person I represent. I am eager to continue fighting for our public schools, providing high-quality education to every child, supporting our economy and funding improvements to infrastructure.
Please continue to connect with me throughout the year. Each month, I hold Community Conversations and release an e-newsletter. I also find opportunities to shine a light on important topics with town halls and other community events.
If you find you need additional assistance or resources, please reach out to me and my staff. You can visit my website at stone.housedems.com for additional resources, events and recent efforts in Lansing. I can be contacted at my office phone number (517) 373-1772, and my official email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Lori M. Stone
State Representative, 28th House District
Looking ahead to 2022:
Legislative Year in Review
Continuing to Advance Important Legislation
This year, House Bill 5092, which requires Michigan’s Unemployment Insurance to communicate in plain and simple language, was unanimously voted out of the state House of Representatives. I am currently working to secure a hearing in the Michigan Senate. Ask your state senator to support HB 5092 to make navigating an unemployment claim easier.
House Bill 4720 or Liam’s Law is inspired by a mom whose child’s disability is a barrier to accessing public venues and events that many of us take for granted. I introduced HB 4720 to require the installation of adult-size, automatic and height adjustable changing tables in large public venues. A hearing in the House Health Policy Committee is pending. A committee hearing is necessary so that families across our state and visiting from other states can enjoy Michigan to the fullest with dignity.
Continued Community Engagement
Community Conversations are an important part of government transparency and accountability. Thank you to everyone that participated last year!
I have enjoyed meeting with community members both in person and virtually. Libraries, parks and Zoom have proven to be great locations for meeting during COVID-19. In addition, Community Conversations have been streamed on Facebook or recorded and shared online for those who could not participate. I will continue to provide a combination of in-person and online events so I can answer questions and better understand concerns. As your state legislator, I learn so much from community events and appreciate your input and ideas on how to improve our community and state. Join me at a community event in the new year!
