Protecting Penal Fines

Thank you to Senator Ed McBroom for supporting the Michigan Constitution and Michigan libraries! At the Michigan Senate Transportation and Infrastructure Committee meeting on November 7, Sen. Edward W. McBroom (R - Vulcan) shared concerns about a proposed bill that would assess and utilize fines, with a reminder about Article 8, Section 9 of the Michigan Constitution: Penal fines should be exclusively applied to public libraries.
