MacDonald ready for a new year serving Macomb County

LANSING, Mich. — On the first day of the 101st Legislature, Sen. Michael D. MacDonald welcomed the people of the 10th Senate District to a new year and a new session.

“I am honored and thankful to serve the people of Macomb County in the state Senate as we continue to work to protect Michigan families and small businesses, support our communities and improve our state,” said MacDonald, R-Macomb Township. “Last year was like no other in state history, yet even with the challenges, I am proud to have had three bills signed into law that will help families in Macomb and throughout our state.”

MacDonald’s bills signed in 2020 include Public Act 312 of 2020 to allow trained law enforcement officers and firefighters to carry and use epinephrine, PA 321 of 2020 to give civil and liability protections to those who are allowed to administer opioid antagonists, and PA 397 of 2020 to reduce maximum probation periods with certain exemptions.

“These new laws will allow Michigan firefighters and police officers to carry and use EpiPens to treat life-threatening allergic reactions and enact smart justice reforms to keep our communities safe and end the cycle of crime,” MacDonald said.
