MacGregor backs new law to protect personal information

Consumers will have better protection against fraud at the gas pump under Senate legislation recently signed into law.

Public Act 168 of 2017 (Senate Bill 415) requires greater security measures at the pump to restrict the unauthorized access of customer payment card information and prevent the use of skimmers. Skimmers are small devices that can be hidden in gas pumps to copy credit and debit card personal information. Approximately 82 skimmers have been found in Michigan since 2015. While many gas stations have security measures already in place, all stations will now be required to provide additional protections for consumers.

The new law takes effect Feb. 19, 2018.

MacGregor supports new law strengthening high school career counseling

Many students and their parents are unaware of the trends in today's changing job market and college selection process. That's why it is important to ensure high school guidance counselors are better able to assist students with information on their college and career opportunities after leaving high school.

I supported a new law that requires high school counselors to dedicate 50 hours of their required 150 hours of professional development to college preparation and career counseling, including careers in the skilled trades, as well as technical and military careers. Public Act 151 of 2017 (House Bill 4181) will apply to school counselors renewing their credentials two years after the effective date of January 2018.

MET enrollment

The Michigan Education Trust (MET) has reopened enrollment in time for holiday gift givers to buy or contribute toward a child's 529 prepaid tuition contract. Family members or friends can purchase a new MET prepaid tuition contract in a child's name or contribute money toward an existing contract. Contract holders qualify for a tax deduction on their Michigan tax returns for purchases or contributions made by Dec. 31.
