LANSING (April 12, 2011) Republican Michigan legislators, Sen. John Proos (R-St. Joseph) and Rep. Amanda Price (R-Holland) have introduced two bills to address Michigan’s meth lab problem. Proos’ bill would require retailers to use electronic tracking systems that would record and track information about consumers who are buying pseudoephedrine(PSE). A bill by Rep. Amanda Price (R-Holland) which serves as a companion bill to Proos legislation. It would place limits on the amount of PSE that can be bought by a consumer and it would require consumers to provide a valid ID at the time of purchase.
If both of the bills proposed by Proos and Price pass, Michigan will join a list of other PSE tracking states like Kansas, whose tracking law is scheduled to take effect on June 1, 2011.
