Senate concurrent resolution No. 69.

Whereas, by statute, the steam railroads of this State whose gross passenger earnings per mile per year amount to twelve hundred dollars or more are now prohibited from charging to exceed two cents per mile passenger fare; and

Whereas, under similar laws and conditions the railroads in the State of Indiana, a state bordering on Michigan, are by law prohibited from collecting in excess of two cents per mile; and

Whereas, the Grand Rapids & Indiana Railroad Company, operating in both the States of Michigan and Indiana, now charges on intestate fares in excess of two cents per mile, thereby imposing a rate of fare upon passengers who have travelled from Michigan into Indiana in excess of the rate charged in both states. Therefore be it

Resolved by the Senate, (the House of Representatives concurring) That the Michigan Railroad Commission be and is hereby authorized to immediately take such steps as shall require the Grand Rapids & Indiana Railroad Company to reduce its interstate fares to two cents per mile, and that said Commission is requested to, if necessary, lay this situation before the Interstate Commerce Commission or to take such other legal steps as will cause the Grand Rapids & Indiana Railroad Company to reduce its interstate fares to two cents per mile in either direction.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,
The resolution was adopted.

And stated he was temporarily absent from the Senate Chamber yesterday at the time the vote was taken on concurring in the amendment made to Senate bill No. 269 (file No. 251), the so-called Home Rule will, which amendment struck from the bill the power of cities to recall all elective officers; that he was the member of the Committee on Cities and Villages that cast the deciding vote to report the bill to the Senate for consideration, and that had he been present yesterday when the vote was taken to concur in the amendment to strike this feature from the bill, he would have voted "nay," believing that cities should have the power to insert in their charters the recall provision.
