Advocacy Corner: Week of 01/04/19

In Review: Lame Duck 2018

Following the most active Lame Duck session in Michigan’s history, nearly 400 bills were passed in the legislature and presented to Governor Rick Snyder for his signature and final approval. Of those, more than 150 bills became law while 41 were vetoed.

Several measures presented to Governor Snyder received significant state and national attention including: campaign finance reform, the legislature’s ability to litigate, a $1.3 billion supplemental spending plan, and changes to citizen-initiated ballot proposal requirements, amongst others. While the full scope of consequence for the passed bills remains to be seen, local analysts have offered initial reflections.

Looking Ahead: Republicans and Democrats Announce 2019 Legislative Priorities

After eight years of total Republican control in Lansing, legislators prepare for the new term to begin on January 9.

As newly inaugurated Democratic officials take control of the governorship, the Secretary of State, Attorney General offices, and reduce Republican majorities in the House and Senate, citizen’s will have a front seat view to a significant shift in the balance of power.

With Republican and Democrat leadership each having announced their anticipated legislative priorities for 2019, both parties have echoed the urgent need to address Michigan’s dilapidated roads as its first major bipartisan challenge.

MSAE will continue to monitor and provide substantive updates to the above. For additional information, contact Taylor Benavente regarding MSAE advocacy.
