LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – State Rep. John Damoose introduced a bill on Tuesday that would ban school districts from imposing mask mandates on students to attend class.

The bill would not ban mask mandates for teachers or school staff.

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has not mandated masks for students this fall, saying she would prefer to leave the question up to individual school districts.

The bill has been referred to the State House Committee on Education. Click here to read it for yourself.
