Schools armed with epi-pens in case of emergenciesAll schools will now stock and have staff trained to use epi-pens in case of emergency allergic reactions. These simple, life-saving devices help slow the reactions and give time for 911 to arrive and transfer the student to a hospital.
I am proud to have championed this bill through the State Senate. Thanks to Rep. Lisa Posthumus Lyons for her leadership on this important initiative and to Governor Rick Snyder for signing it into law. Read more here.

Pavlov backs citizen initiative for professional resource managementMichigan's natural resources are the pride of our state. I recently supported citizen-initiated legislation that makes sure our fish and wildlife are managed using sound science. The Scientific Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act:
- lets the Natural Resources Commission keep its authority to name and manage game species for hunting and to regulate the taking of fish;
- helps combat the threat of aquatic invasive species like Asian carp; and
- establishes free hunting and fishing licenses for active duty military members.
"You are not forgotten"National POW MIA Recognition Day will be observed on Friday, Sept. 19. This somber event honors missing servicemen and women from past wars and conflicts and those whose remains have not been recovered. The U.S. Department of Defense lists more than 83,000 Americans still missing from World War II, the Korean War, the Cold War, the Vietnam War and the 1991 Gulf War.
