2013 Senate Bill 706: Restore ban on nude entertainment in liquor license law
  1. Introduced by Sen. Rick Jones (R) on December 4, 2013, to ban fully nude performers at “topless” bars, or the display of explicit pornography at bars. This relates to a 2007 federal appeals court ruling that struck down Michigan’s previous law banning fully nude performers in bars, holding it was a violation of the First Amendment.
    • Referred to the Senate Regulatory Reform Committee on December 4, 2013.
