A former professor of Geography at Ferris State University along with State House Representative Phil Potvin testified in support of a bill that will place the boundaries for the state of Michigan in statute.


House Bill 4264, sponsored by Rep. Potvin, will clearly lay out Michigan’s boundaries with neighboring states and Canada.


Potvin says the boundaries of Michigan have not been fully spelled out in state law or the constitution for more than 50 years, and his legislation remedies that.


During testimony, former FSU Professor, Richard Santer said Michigan educators, geographers, historians and others need an updated boundary description to communicate the true area of citizen responsibility.
