It was a busy day for the governor yesterday, as he signed fifty-three new bills into law. In the past few weeks, close to three-hundred bills have made it to the governor's desk.
Republican Senator Rick Jones says it's no coincidence the rush of legislation kicked in just before the new year.
"Before the two years you have to get everything out, or start over again in January," Jones said.
Jones says some constituents are skeptical about the amount of bills passed in such a short time--but says the work behind the bills takes much longer than they realize.
"A few people in the coffee shops said, you know, is everything done in two weeks, and of course I said absolutely not, these things take years."
Among the many bills signed just yesterday were a revised version of the state's medical marijuana law, adding more restrictions to card holders, an internet privacy law that prevents employers from getting access to their employees passwords for online accounts, and a set of abortion bills known as the omnibus abortion package, which adds heavier restrictions to clinics.
"Certainly i think this has been a productive session," said Jones.
But not all Michigan lawmakers describe this session as productive. In a statement to six news--democratic state rep Barb Byrum had this to say:
"The staggering amount of bills signed into law within the past day is a clear example of the governor and republicans taking advantage of lame duck to jam through extreme and unpopular policies that harm women, workers and our way of life."
The statement went on to say:
"Republicans did more harm and more damage in two weeks than most politicians can do in two years and i believe voters will hold them accountable for this massive overreach and power play."
