Michigan Legislature Adjourns for Summer Break
The Legislature has adjourned until July 13, 2016.
Lobbying, ethics, and campaign finance were not matters of primary focus during this session; instead, bills passing the Legislature on its final day in session were focused on improving the state’s horse racing industry, rights for domestic violence victims, authorizing police to alert cell phone users in areas where there are active shooters, and updating driving under the influence tests to better screen for drug use.
The House and Senate will be back in session for one day each in July and August, but are expected to address primarily housekeeping matters in those sessions.
