House Passes Changes to MDOT Annual Certification of Employee-Related Conditions

Posted on October 2, 2014 by John LaMacchia

The House passed SB 882 yesterday by a vote of 107-2. A floor amendment was adopted creating an additional change to the bill. The amendment states that when cities and villages certify to MDOT their compliance with PA 152 they will also have to inform MDOT if they opted out. Concurrence in the House changes should happen in the Senate this morning, followed by the Governor’s signature before the end of the day.

The final version of this bill eliminates the requirement for cities and villages to post their current fiscal budget, list the number of transportation employees, and create an additional dashboard. It pushes the implementation date back to September 30, 2015 and maintains the requirement to certify with the department that you are in compliance with PA 152 along with the additional information of whether or not you opted out. If you fail to send in your certification form to the department by September 30, 2015 they may withhold your Act 51 funding.
