The bill unveiled in Muskegon County comes after the April disappearance of a 26-year-old woman from her job at a Norton Shores gas station. Jessica Heeringa's mother and local law enforcement attended the news conference.
"I believe these measures go a long way to preventing the kind of anguish endured by her family," said the bill's sponsor, Rep. Collene Lamonte, D-Montague.
Heeringa disappeared before she was set to close the station, where she was working alone. Police said there was no indication of a robbery.
The gas station had no security cameras, leaving authorities without potential clues. The reward for information in the case is more than $15,000.
"I think if a security camera were in place, Jessica would still be here today," said her mother, Shelly Heeringa.
The proposed law would be called the Jessica Heeringa Act. Lamonte said three states have laws similar to her bill.
