LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A lawmaker wants to limit the use of tobacco products in motor vehicles in Michigan when children are present.
Legislation announced Wednesday by Democratic state Rep. Sam Singh of East Lansing would make it illegal for any tobacco product to be lit in a vehicle when a person under the age of 18 is inside.
As proposed, a violation could result in a $500 fine. Singh says he wants a yearlong grace period so people can get used to the change.
