TRY, TRY AGAIN

February 5, 2019

Michael Webber

 

Although judged DOA in multiple past legislative sessions, Michigan House Rep. Michael Webber (R-Rochester, Rochester Hills) has introduced a proposal to limit the legislature to part-time status. Under a joint resolution introduced in January, lawmakers would be limited to meeting in session just 90 days a year. The proposal, which Webber had previously introduced in 2017, has gotten a cold reception from fellow lawmakers. Former Lt. Governor Brian Calley also pitched the idea last year while running for governor. Webber said the idea is to cut down on frivolous legislation and to force lawmakers to focus more on efficient policy and budget processes. He said the idea could also include revisiting legislative term limits. “It seems like the right thing to introduce to get the conversation going this session,” Webber said.
