The Michigan House of Representative, by a unanimous vote of 110-0, sent HB 5073 to the Senate. This bill would allow MDOT to approved angled parking on state trunklines at the request of a local municipality. The Michigan Municipal League would like to thank Rep. Peter Pettalia for sponsoring this legislation and his commitment to moving it through the House. We look forward to his continued support as we work with Sen. Tom Casperson, Chair of the Senate Transportation Committee, in the hopes of getting this bill to the governors desk before the end of the year.
