β€œ...A retailer may not refuse to accept fewer than $25 in returns from a person...”

https://www.michigan.gov/documents/ag/MI_Bottle_Deposit_Law_FAQ_379576_7.pdf

How many containers per day can be returned to a retailer?

A dealer may accept, but is not required to accept, from a person, empty returnable containers for a refund in excess of $25 on any given day.

In other words, the Michigan Bottle Deposit Law allows up to $25 in refunds to be given per person per day per retailer.

If the retailer chooses, he/she may accept additional amounts. However, a retailer may not refuse to accept fewer than $25 in returns from a person.

Extra funding for energy assistance ends this month: How to get help

PLEASE SHARE NOW!!!

As the pandemic continues and unemployment remains high, the state is encouraging Michigan residents who are unable to pay their energy bills to seek help before they receive a shutoff notice or are almost out of propane or fuel oil, especially as winter approaches.

As additional state funding for energy assistance ends Sept. 30 and chillier weather approaches, the state urges Michiganders to seek help.

Roe v. Wade

Rest In Peace Supreme Court Judge Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Champion of all human rights including the rights of women.

Please actively pay attention! Vote and hold ALL accountable.

The Supreme Court is lopsided. We ALL need to know what is at stake:

Women’s Rights is on the ballot!
Voters Rights is on the ballot!
Democracy is on the ballot.

Please actively pay attention! Vote and hold ALL accountable.

A case in which the Court struck down several Texas laws that criminalized abortion, holding that laws that impose an undue burden on a woman’s right to seek an abortion violate her fundamental right to privacy under the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.

Sedition - FindLaw

This president wants to use Sedition to lock up his political adversaries.

Sedition is overt conduct, such as speech and organization, that tends toward insurrection against the established order. Sedition often includes subversion of a constitution and incitement of discontent toward, or resistance against, established authority. Sedition may include any commotion, though not aimed at direct and open violence against the laws. Seditious words in writing are seditious libel. A seditionist is one who engages in or promotes the interest of sedition.

Typically, sedition is not considered a subversive act, and the overt acts that may be prosecutable under sedition laws vary from one legal code to another. Where the history of these legal codes has been traced, there is also a record of the change in the definition of the elements constituting sedition at certain points in history. This overview has served to develop a sociological definition of sedition as well, within the study of state persecution.

Sedition, a serious felony punishable by fines and up to 20 years in prison, refers to the act of inciting revolt or violence against a lawful authority with the goal of destroying or overthrowing it. FindLaw provides an overview of this particular crime against the government, with historical refer...

Traffic Calming | City of Detroit

Hello Friends,

My office has spoken with several community members concerned about traffic in their neighborhoods.

Using the link below you can request a speed hump for your street that will be evaluated based on the following criteria:

~Residential streets with a speed limit of 25 MPH
~Priority to streets adjacent to active schools and parks
~Daily traffic volumes between 200-4000 vehicles
~DPD records of speeding and vehicle crashes
~Street used as a known "cut through" for a major road
~Support of the residents on the block

Let's keep our communities safe!

https://detroitmi.gov/departments/department-public-works/complete-streets/traffic-calming

What is a speed hump? Speed humps are rounded raised areas of asphalt or prefabricated rubber constructed across the roadway width. Why install speed humps? Speed humps are designed to reduce vehicular speed on residential local streets that have a single travel lane in each direction. What are the....

LET'S WORK TOGETHER AND GET BILL 5094 PASSED!
If you have chosen this person to represent you, you have done a disservice to the rest of the State of Michigan.
The open carry gun ban and this new ammo taxation law you are trying to pass is ridiculous.
Thank you so much for stopping by our DPPRALLY in Lansing at the Capital today! Your support was very heartening after years of not feeling heard! #PainPatientsVote
Hi Mrs. Johnson u just wanted to reach out and share my consensus about your recent Bill. Legal gun owners should have a right to protect there family and enjoy the great state of Michigan with hunting without our rights being stomped on. Chicago banned private home owners for protecting their homes until the NRA took them to court and won their rights back, many of these homeowners are in minority areas where the only guns on the street are illegal ones held by criminals. U just wanted to reach out but I also want to be respectful in that manner. Have a great week....
You need to worry about other things than taxing ammo and ban open carry....wake up because Detroit needs cleaned up.....
Lay off the crack pipe it’s really starting to affect your mind
Thanking. Representative Cynthia A. Johnson and Nakpangi Thomas for joining Bus Riders at DDOT August Community Meeting, and continued support for Detroiters whose daily lives are impacted by Public Transit
