With the likelihood of large amounts of visitors expected at the Capitol today and Tuesday, the Michigan State Police (MSP) have announced they will be “strictly enforcing the procedures for the use of the Michigan State Capitol, as approved and published by the Michigan Capitol Committee.”

MSP Director Colonel Kriste Kibbey Etue said “all of the measures we are taking at the Capitol are to ensure the safety of those working and conducting business in the Capitol and the surrounding state buildings. Our responsibility includes safeguarding the Constitutional rights of those attempting to petition their legislators, and enforcing these rules allows us to provide a safe forum for everyone.”

Some of the rules include: public use of the Capitol shall not interfere with any legislative session, hand carried signs are not allowed in the public areas inside the Capitol, and no sound amplifying equipment.

The full procedures for use of the public areas of the Michigan State Capitol can be found here.
