Ron Olson's Challenge
Governor Granholm had yet to take a position on the parks passport proposal in mid-May. However, both the state house and senate had moved the legislation out of committee, positioning it to come to a vote soon. Olson says that it's his understanding that the sponsors hope to push the bill through before the legislature's summer recess at the end of June. If they pull it off, it will be the state parks' best birthday present ever.
