Michigan Legislative Update
Week of 12 22-14
Michigan legislators ended their lame duck session last week after passing legislation that had been caught up in bartering over a road funding package.
In the 13 voting days after the November election, the Legislature sent 224 bills to Governor Rick Snyder for his signature, fewer than the 287 put on his desk in the much more contentious 2012 lame duck session. He vetoed eight of those bills two years ago and still must review most of the bills that still will land on his desk in the coming weeks.
Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year.
