Hello Friends,

Happy fall! There is nothing better than a Michigan fall, and our office is excited for the cider and donuts that come along with it.

We are hard at work in Lansing passing important legislation for our community. We also have a couple community events coming up that I hope you will join us for!

As always, if our office can ever assist you, please do not hesitate to reach out.

Rep. Puri Introduces Legislation to Support Energy Independence 

On Sept. 19, I introduced House Bill 5028 to prohibit a homeowners association from preventing the ability of a homeowner to make energy-saving modifications and improvements on their home. This would mean no more all-out prohibitions on things such as rooftop solar panels or EV chargers.

I have heard from so many constituents across the district who are eager to make energy-saving modifications to their home about this issue. These investments can come with a host of benefits for homeowners, such as reduced energy costs, increased property value, environmental sustainability and energy independence!

House Passes Filter First Legislation 

Last week, the House passed my “Filter First” legislation, House Bill 4341, bringing Michigan one step closer to safe, clean drinking water at every school and child care center. This is a three-bill package that would require water filtration systems to be installed in all schools and child care centers.

No amount of lead in water is safe for kids, which is why we need water filtration systems at all schools and child care centers. Safe drinking water is a bipartisan priority. It’s a public health issue, an environmental issue and an equity issue.

Michigan is the Great Lakes State, a place with an abundance of freshwater. As a father to three small boys, the least I can ask for as a parent is that the place we send our children every day to learn and play is safe and has clean drinking water.

Rep. Puri sits at his desk on the Michigan House floor in front of the voting board that shows his filter first legislation has passed.
