State Representative Andy Schor of Lansing has introduced a house bill that would allow schools to start their academic year before the Labor Day holiday.  WILX TV in a report says the law prohibiting public schools in the state from holding classes before Labor Day has been in effect since 2006. One of the reasons for the old law is to aid the Michigan tourism industry by stretching out the summer travel season as long as possible.
