Democrats expect negotiations for key economic policy bills
Early bills introduced include a repeal of retirement and pension taxes and a bill to move up Michigan’s presidential primary election
Committee assignments are now out in the Michigan Senate. The update allows lawmakers to start dealmaking and holding hearings on their first bills of the session.
Democratic Senator Jeremy Moss is part of his chamber's leadership. He says the assignments mean his caucus is ready to take the reins after decades of Republican control.
“Many of us have been in the wings waiting for a while. Serving as vice chairs or serving on these committees for several years. So, this is an opportunity for us to actually now take the gavels, set the agenda.”
But Moss says he wants to start the session with Republicans also feeling like they have strength on committees.
Early bills introduced include a repeal of retirement and pension taxes and a bill to move up Michigan’s presidential primary election.
