County road agencies across Michigan are sounding the alarm…
… about Senate Bill 396! If passed, it could result in serious damage to Michigan’s already fragile roads.
SB 396, pending on the Senate floor since September, would exempt the logging industry from seasonal weight restrictions on county roads and from obtaining permits. If SB 396 passes, logging trucks, harvesters and other heavy equipment would have free reign on the local road system that is extremely vulnerable during the spring thaw.
While county road agencies acknowledge, appreciate and respect Michigan’s logging industry, SB 396 simply gives away the future of Michigan county roads.

What can you do? Contact your state representatives and senators. Tell them to protect local roads by voting no on SB 396.
