LANSING — State Sen. Roger Victory, R-Hudsonville attended a ceremonial bill signing Wednesday of Senate Bills 192 and 193 (now Public Acts 33 and 34 of 2019), a law that allows drivers eligible for a daytime-only restricted license to be exempt from the nighttime driving requirements to obtain a driver’s license.

Victory sponsored the legislation because of Jack Carrier of Jenison, who was unable to complete standard driver’s training courses due to a medical condition that hinders his nighttime vision.

Jack’s parents, John and Mary Carrier, also attended the bill signing.
