LANSING, Mich., Sept. 24, 2020 – The Michigan House of Representatives passed House Bill 6235 today to block the state from denying to issue or renew an individual’s driver’s license as a penalty for failing to appear in court. State Rep. Cynthia R. Neeley (D-Flint), who sponsored the bill, issued the following statement:
“Taking away a driver’s license should be limited to people who are a danger to their fellow drivers. Losing your ability to drive makes it harder for them to get to work, take your kids to school and make it to a doctor’s appointment when you need to. I am pleased that my colleagues here in the House stood up to join me in restoring driving rights to hundreds of our fellow Michiganders. I hope my colleagues in the Senate follow our lead.”
