Michigan stores that handle ‘money orders’ may soon have to post the fees they charge

State representative Leslie Love says many poor Michiganders use ‘money orders’ to pay their bills. 

Love says fees ranging from 50 cents to two dollars may not sound like much to many people. 

“But a person who’s trying to run a household on $15,000 and they have three or four children, those one dollar’s and fifty cents add up.”

A state House committee heard testimony on Love’s bill last week.
