Under a new budget proposal from State Sen. Bruce Casswell, children in the state’s foster care system would be allowed to purchase clothing only in used clothing stores.
Casswell, a Republican representing Branch, Hillsdale, Lenawee and St. Joseph counties, made the proposal this week, reports Michigan Public Radio.
“I never had anything new,” Caswell says.
And in the spirit in which it was offered, perhaps he could amend the bill to require yellow stars be sown upon the clothing, so it can be more easily inspected for authenticity by the authorities?
