Mich. Bill Designed To Protect Late-Night Clerks

Posted: Updated:

NORTON SHORE, Mich. (AP) - Legislation is being announced that would require Michigan gas stations open after 11 p.m. to have two employees working or to install security cameras.

The bill scheduled to be unveiled Monday morning in western Michigan comes after the April disappearance of a 26-year-old woman from her job at a Norton Shores gas station. The Muskegon Chronicle reports Jessica Heeringa's family will attend the news conference.

Heeringa disappeared before she was set to close the station. Police said there was no indication of a robbery.

Democratic Rep. Collene LaMonte of Montague is planning to give details about her bill that could be called "Jessica's Law."

The gas station had no security cameras, leaving authorities without potential clues.
