New Michigan Laws in 2020
Get ready to ring in the new year by reviewing some of the new laws that will take effect in 2020.
According to the Lansing State Journal, Michigan's lowest paid workers will get a 20 cent raise in 2020. On Jan. 1, the state's minimum wage will increase from $945 to $9.65. The minimum wage is set to increase to $12.05 by 2030.
Internet gaming, sports betting and fantasy contests are legal in Michigan since gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed a state of bills in December.
Lawmakers expect the new forms of gaming to be available by March. Revenue from the newly legal forms of gambling will support the School Aid Fund and First Responder Presumed Coverage Fund, which provides workers compensation and medical benefits for first responders who develop certain cancers.
Starting July 1, Michigan drivers will be allowed to choose levels of medical coverage in their auto insurance policies. Choosing limited coverage would decrease the cost of insurance policies. Please click on the above link for new laws in 2020.
