LANSING, Mich. — Sen. Dale Zorn, R-Ida, and his daughter, Holly Zorn Lindsay, testified before the Senate Families, Seniors, and Veterans Committee on Wednesday about Senate Bill 530 to have Michigan join several states, including Ohio, in creating a Purple Star program to support students of military families when they move to a new school.

Zorn’s bill would require the state Department of Education to establish the Purple Star Program by 2023 and allow a local school district to become a Purple Star Designated School if they apply and meet certain requirements.
