Kowall said in a statements that the proposed changes to the code will not only update the law, but will “provide safer transportation, better mobility and a stronger economy” for the state in general. “The law is becoming more outdated day by day as technology advances and other states seek the new automotive industry for themselves,” Kowall said. “Michigan’s dominance in auto research and development is under attack from several states and countries who desire to supplant our leadership in transportation. We can’t let that happen.
