A bill that aims to capture fugitives in Michigan is headed to Whitmer’s desk.

House Bill 4173 will remove the $2,000 cap on the amount a county can offer as a reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of a wanted suspect or an escapee. 

“The amount of money that counties can offer as a reward has not changed in nearly 100 years. Higher reward amounts could lead to better information and get dangerous people off the streets,” said bill sponsor state Rep. Kara Hope (D-Holt) in a press release. “It’s past time that we give counties this tool to encourage reluctant witnesses to come forward.” 

HB 4173 unanimously passed the House of Representatives in February.

The bill is supported by the Michigan Sheriffs Association, the Prosecuting Attorneys Association of Michigan and the Michigan Association of Counties.
