Boating hours change bill withdrawn
House Bill 4362 would have limited boating hours on Michigan lakes but it has been withdrawn.
But not before creating considerable consternation among boaters and anglers.
The amendment was co-sponsored by 56th Dist. State Rep. Jason Sheppard, R-Temperance, and 75th Dist. State Rep. David LaGrand, D-Grand Rapids. According to a post from Sheppard on his Facebook page, his intent was the opposite of the wording introduced. The bill had been assigned to the Government Operations Committee Sheppard chairs.
