They're back... Lawmakers to make a (quick) trip back to Lansing
Well, it appears that state lawmakers aren't quite done with this year's lame duck legislative session.
It's been announced that both the Democrat-led House and Republican-led Senate will convene at the state Capitol tomorrow. The news comes after lawmakers declared their two-year session was done on December 3rd.
However, the Associated Press reports, that neither chamber is expected to take up any controversial issues:
The House is expected to deal with legislation cracking down on human trafficking and a few other issues. The Senate will deal with bills that can't be sent to GovernorJennifer Granholm because they didn't get an immediate effect vote or because they were changed by the House. Lawmakers aren't expected to take up insurance coverage for autism, teacher tenure rules or other sensitive subjects that were left unaddressed before adjourning earlier this month.
