Secretary of State Ruth Johnson told GAC attendees Tuesday that an EVT system will reduce fraud. "The sophisticated level of some of (people who commit title fraud) is just incredible," Johnson said (Monitor March 26).
The state Legislature is drafting a four-bill package on EVT, according to Chris Hackbarth, director of the office of policy initiatives for the Secretary of State.
The GAC was held just before lawmakers started their spring recess.
Credit union advocates also visited lawmakers from their districts Wednesday, following a debate between the chairmen of Michigan's Republican and Democratic parties (Monitor May 27). The GOP's Bobby Schostak and the Democrats' Lon Johnson spoke about the state economic environment.
