Both Complete Streets bills (HB 6151 and HB 6152) were presented to Governor Granholm last Thursday afternoon. Late Sunday, she signed them both into law.

They were sent to the Secretary of State’s office on Monday, August 2 as Public Acts 134 and 135 of 2010.

Congratulations to everyone who helped make this possible!

Of course the work is just beginning. These bills really just set the stage for implementing Complete Streets throughout Michigan.

The Michigan Complete Streets Coalition is encouraging supporters to send the bill sponsors a quick thank you message:
