Bill would keep courts from enforcing foreign laws

Posted: Updated:
MICHIGAN, (WNEM) -

Legislation that would keep courts from enforcing foreign laws has been introduced by state lawmakers.

House Bill 4499 was sponsored by Republican Rep. Michele Hoitenga of Manton on April 20.

It states:

A court, arbitrator, administrative agency, or other adjudicative, mediation, or enforcement authority shall not enforce a foreign law if doing so would violate a right guaranteed by the constitution of this state or of the United States.

If the bill makes it to Gov. Snyder’s desk, it will take effect 90 days after it is signed into law.
