The Michigan Retailers Association (MRA) Wednesday praised Gov. Rick Snyder’s plan to provide law enforcement with better tools to fight organized retail crime.
“We applaud Gov. Snyder for taking on this serious public safety issue, and we look forward to assisting his legislative efforts to insure better laws are enacted,” said James P. Hallan, MRA president and CEO, explaining organized retail crime is responsible for a large and growing share of the estimated $15 to $30 billion in annual retail theft across the nation.
