House Bill 4095, Revise foster care home zoning restriction: Passed 73 to 36 in the House

To revise a law that prohibits local zoning codes from excluding a child foster care facility with six or fewer residents from being located in a residential neighborhood. The bill changes this to prohibit zoning ordinances that ban foster care homes with up to 10 residents if they are located on 20 acres or more.

House Bill 4190, Limit corporate subsidy deal modifications: Passed 106 to 3 in the House

To prohibit state economic development officials from modifying one of the agreements entered with a relative handful of large companies mostly in the late 2000s that granted them up to $9 billion worth of state taxpayer subsidies (styled as “refundable business tax credits”) over a 20 year period. Specifically, the subsidy deals granted under the since-suspended “Michigan Economic Growth Authority” program (MEGA) could not be changed in a way that increases the payouts or extends them.

Rep. Ben Frederick, R-Owosso Y
