Due to a data-entry error, Rep. Dave Agema, R-Grandville, was incorrectly listed on MichiganVotes.org as the sponsor of House Bill 5593, now Public Act 216 of 2009, which increased the state licensure fees imposed on nurses. A Michigan Capitol Confidential story citing MichiganVotes.org inadvertently repeated the error.
House Bill 5593 was actually sponsored by Rep. Alma Wheeler Smith, D-Salem Township. There were no co-sponsors. Rep Agema voted "no" on the bill when it passed the House on Dec. 10, 2009 (complete roll call voting information here).
MichiganVotes.org and Michigan Capitol Confidential apologize to Rep. Agema for the error.
Below are some bills from the current Legislature that really were sponsored by Rep. Agema; the full list of all the bills he has ever sponsored is here.
