This week the House Local Government Committee will begin to move on HB 4105--the Sanctuary Policy Prohibition Act.
This week they will begin discussion of the bill. We will attend the meeting to make our opposition loud and clear.
On Wednesday, June 7th, the committee will hear testimony from supporters and opponents of the bill. Please attend this meeting and plan to speak.
HB 4105 would ban sanctuary cities in Michigan and withhold funding from cities that refuse to comply.
Our goal is to prevent this bill, and HB 4334 (which would apply to counties), from making it out of committee. If we can stop it in committee it will never make it to the House floor for a vote.
The committee is made up of 7 Republicans and 5 Democrats so we have our work cut out for us. When you go to the meeting on June 7th, ask the committee clerk for a card to fill out, notifying the committee that you want to speak.
Please call all of the reps and urge them not to support this bill. We will post a script for calls soon.
