LANSING, MI (MPRN)-- Lying to your landlord about needing an emotional support animal could become a crime in the state.
Michigan Public Radio Network’s Cheyna Roth reports bills in the state House would make it a misdemeanor.
Concerns over the bills include a potential “chilling effect” on people with mental health problems getting emotional support animals.
Democratic Representative Sara Cambensy is a bill sponsor. She doesn’t think that would be a problem.
“I think the people that need them will seek them out, regardless of our bill package.”
