Eight communities in mid-Michigan have received letters from the American Civil Liberties Union telling them their panhandling ordinances are unconstitutional.
The letters are based on a state law thrown out by a federal appeals court last August.
Courts have upheld laws against "aggressive" begging.
The ACLU says the ordinances in question don't meet that standard.
The letters were sent to Lansing, East Lansing, Delhi Twp., DeWitt Twp., Ovid, Eaton Rapids, Brooklyn and Jonesville.
