PA 2 (HB 4198) 'The Snowmobile Bill'
Governor Jennifer Granholm signed into law PA 2, a bill that restored the rights of those injured or killed due to snowmobile related negligence.

(L to R, standing) Former LaSata Legislative Assistant Kim Haefner; Representative Charles LaSata; Barry Conybeare of Conybeare Law Office, P.C, and MTLA Legislative Council Rick Duranczyk look on while Governer Jennifer Granholm signs HB 4198 into law
A controversial court interpretation of 1994 PA 451 had granted wholesale immunity to negigent operators of snowmobiles, and left those injured or killed in their wake with no recourse. MTLA was instrumental in identifying this issue and moving the bi-partisan common sense bill into law.

MTLA member Barry Conybeare of St. Joseph worked with his Representative, Charlie LaSata, to raise awaremness of the issue among lawmakers and to craft a solution to the problem.

Hard working members like Conybeare make MTLA and even more effective force in our fight for justice for all Michigan families.
