Contact Your Legislators - PA 312 and Urban Cooperation Act Hearing on Wednesday!
House Labor Committee this Wednesday, June 16 at noon will
be taking up the Senate's version of PA 312 reform, SB
1072, as well as the Senate's Urban
Cooperation Act (UCA) bills. As they are now, these bills
would expand PA 312 without any substantive reforms to the
current law. Contact
your legislators and tell them to vote NO on expanding
PA 312. Tell your legislators that if they want to help our
local units of government they need to pass real reform bills,
not these watered-down versions. Contact your legislators today! MORE>
