Legislature's Break Draws Bipartisan Criticism
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The state Legislature's November recess is
drawing criticism from both Democrats and Republicans.
Democratic Governor Jennifer Granholm wants lawmakers in session
to deal with the repeal and replacement of a services tax scheduled
to take effect next month.
Reps. Rick Jones and Paul Opsommer, two Republicans from the
Lansing area, say lawmakers should be in session to vote on several
bills affecting the budget.
Leaders in both the Democrat-led House and Republican-led Senate
have justified the break, saying work on key issues is continuing
behind the scenes.
Lawmakers aren't scheduled to meet again until next Tuesday
