SBs 795-802 would increase penalties for individuals who bring invasive species back to Michigan. Pavlov is the sponsor of SB 797.

“Aquatic invasive species pose a devastating threat to the health of our Great Lakes,” Pavlov said. “This in turn could seriously affect the economy of the region and the lives of millions of Michiganders and others. We must take steps to prevent this from happening.”
