Michigan governor signs snowmobile registration bill
LANSING, Mich. (6/5/08)--Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm signed into law a secured snowmobile registration bill--House Bill 5085--which was put forward by the Michigan Credit Union League (MCUL). The bill establishes a secured registration system for snowmobiles without any additional costs to snowmobile operators, according to the league’s website. “It will help credit unions and other lenders by requiring that all lien holders of a financed snowmobile be listed on the vehicle’s registration,” said MCUL Executive Vice President Patrick La Pine. “This brings snowmobiles under the same registration system that applies to motor vehicles and boats.” Introduced by State Rep. Jeff Mayes (D-Bay City), H.B. 5085 passed the state House 104-2 on Dec 13. In a 105-1 vote, the Michigan House concurred with the Senate action May 13. The registration system the bill establishes will take effect in 2009, when the secretary of state’s office is scheduled to undergo a computer upgrade.
