Today, the Senate Local Government Committee passed out SB 394 (adopted S-2 version: SB 394 s-2) , a bill to fold townships into the mix of those local communities who qualify for the act, clarifies that inspection programs are optional at the local level, and states a rental inspection fee cannot be required to be paid more than 6 months prior to the actual inspection. The League testified in support of this legislation during the last committee hearing.
Again, thank you to Sen. Robertson, his staff, Rental Property Owners Association, and Apartment Association of Michigan for working with us on this issue to address our concerns from last session’s legislation.
