The Veto Does It

car-repairHB4344 is dead.

We scoffed at the consumer protections aspect of this ‘aftermarket’ legislation.  How is raising the cost of repairs and limiting choices in a market environment seen as ‘protection?’

Rick Snyder, often criticized on these pages did one right.  The veto of HB4344 assures that a strong aftermarket industry remains in Michigan. He opines:

I support much of the modernization of the Act that HB 4344 includes, as well as limiting structural parts that are proven to impact safety. However, I am unable to sign this bill because it overreaches in the limitation of aftermarket parts negatively impacting consumers and creating the potential for negative consequences for Michigan’s automotive industry. Accordingly, I am returning HB 4344 to you without signature.

Well done.

Now perhaps we start looking at other protectionist legislation?

    The entire legislature has STACKS of unanimously passed (or near) pending bills no better than this and just as damaging or more stacked up like cordwood right now for this man's signature. I would like for somebody to challenge me here if they believe that this is not the first time in Michigan history that one political party has held the other hostage while both benefitted.

    Here we have a Governor (standing alone) doing the right thing for both the people AND the Communist Chinese due to a dead conservative grassroots movement, poisoned children and an election cycle/legislative session like no other.

    My how far we have fallen.
