A SUMMARY OF HOUSE BILL 5592 AS INTRODUCED 5-3-12
The act currently says that a writ of garnishment of 'periodic payments' remains in effect for the period of time that is prescribed by the Michigan court rules. That provision would still apply to garnishments of other kinds of periodic payments but not to wages, salary, commissions, and other earnings.
The bill would have no fiscal impact on the judiciary.
