LANSING, Mich. — The Michigan Senate on Wednesday passed a memorial resolution recognizing the legacy of former Sen. Doug Cruce, R-Troy, sponsor of the state’s original 1985 seat belt law, who passed away last year.
“I was honored to help celebrate the life of one of my predecessors representing the city of Troy in the Michigan Senate,” said Sen. Michael Webber, R-Rochester Hills. “Sen. Cruce’s impact on public safety and his contributions to the insurance industry are undeniable. He truly helped to enhance the quality of life for all Michiganders.”
Cruce served in the Legislature from 1981 to 1992 and was later president of the Michigan Insurance Federation.
