Michigan legislators will soon discuss a bill that would outlaw aggressive solicitation in the state and create a fine for violators.

The bill moved from the House Criminal Justice Committee to the floor this week, only a few months after Rep. Mike McCready, R-Bloomfield Hills, introduced it in December.

I walked the streets of Ann Arbor and talked to people who were panhandling to hear their thoughts on the bill.

Listen to Katy Zeedyk, Fink Tuttle, James Manning, and Jeff Lee talk about aggressive panhandling below.
