02Jul Rep. Griffin measure eliminates an outdated, irrelevant law Categories: Griffin News A plan removing an obsolete section of Michigan law proposed by state Rep. Beth Griffin, of Mattawan, has been signed into law by the governor.Griffin’s new law removes a 1931 act that references the criminal sentencing guidelines in regard to ship officers making a false protest about a ship or its cargo with intent to defraud an insurer. Individuals who injure, deceive or defraud someone today would be charged with fraud rather than making a false protest.“The impact of cleaning up the books helps government run much more efficiently – which is something I know every hard-working taxpayer desires,” Griffin said. “While building on all the work we’ve accomplished already this legislative session, it is important we reduce unnecessary regulations in the process.”House Bill 5763 now becomes Public Act 285 of 2018.
