Inside Michigan’s Lame Duck Legislative Session

Join us Friday, Dec. 4, from noon to 1 p.m. for our next segment, Michigan’s Other Duck Season. This month’s timely topic examines that time period at the end of a legislative session—as some members prepare to leave office and before newly elected legislators take office—fondly referred to as lame duck. Despite this year’s controversial election, the power shift among Michigan’s Legislature will not change in January. But that doesn’t mean the attempts to eliminate or reduce local authority won’t be considered in lame duck. Join us for the inside scoop including anticipated legislative priorities, what could expire, what might be extended and what you can expect from this year’s late-night negotiations.
