First set of election bills head to MI governor’s desk

Michigan Senate Republicans passed several House bills Thursday as part of the party’s effort to make major changes to the state’s election law following the 2020 presidential election, which saw an unprecedented disinformation campaign about the integrity and outcome of the election. After Senate lawmakers made small adjustments to four election bills previously passed by the House, they were returned to the lower chamber, which quickly approved the changes. Those bills now head to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. They will be the first set of elections bills to land on her desk this session amid a flurry of legislative activity aimed at overhauling Michigan’s election laws.
