Legislative Update

Putting Workers First

Last week, several of my colleagues and I introduced a 34-bill package (House Bills 58055836) that puts Michigan workers first by restoring organizing, collective bargaining and workers’ rights. My bill in this package, HB 5824, repeals the Domestic Partner Benefit Restriction Act, which prohibits public employers from providing domestic partner benefits.

Our entire state succeeds when our workers succeed. I firmly believe that it is our duty as legislators to ensure that all workers are heard, supported and given the protections and rights they deserve.

Community Update

The new city of Livonia app has launched! Available on both the Apple App Store and Google Play, the app is the best way to report potholes, missed trash pick-ups and countless other service requests. The app allows you to tag the exact location of any service requests, ensuring it gets attention from the city of Livonia or Wayne County.

Our roads have been hard-hit by freeze/thaw cycles in recent weeks, creating many problems for Livonia drivers. Wayne County recently announced expanded staff schedules to 10 hours per day/six days a week, and we’re starting to see some progress on repairs.

The city of Livonia app is the best way to report potholes needing repair. The app allows you to accurately locate potholes and send them to the proper government body for repair. Fixes for Wayne County roads go to the county government and fixes for local roads go to Livonia’s Department of Public Works.
