2012 Senate Bill 1052

House Roll Call 463: Passed

To essentially repeal state regulations mandating a permit for “<a href="http://www.michiganvotes.org/2003-HB-4257">beach grooming</a>.” The restrictions were passed in 2003 during a period of low Great Lakes water levels, when many lakefront property owners and resorts were unable to access or use beaches because of excessive weed growth. The bill would not apply in the St. Clair flats portion of Lake St. Clair.
