Senate GOP Fall Agenda

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - In Michigan politics today, Senate Republicans contend they have been working on Governor Snyder's legislative agenda for two years and now it is their turn to push what they want.

6 News Capitol Correspondent Tim Skubick on the Senate GOP Fall Agenda. "Nobody has used the term, but you could say the Senate Republicans are suffering from Snyder fatigue."

For over two years the Senate GOP Leader has this analysis of what he and the GOP Senators have been doing.

"I think we've carried a lot of water for the Governor in the last two and a half years," said Sen. Randy Richardville, (R) GOP Leader.  This week the senate GOP will unveil their list of what they want to do.

"Now my members are saying I've got some things I came here to do too, and we're compiling those lists and their day is coming this fall," said Richardville.

On that list is changing the no fault car insurance law. Backers of the bill says the unlimited life time benefits need a cap. The health care industry and other special interests disagree.

Mr. Richardville says it is time to stop talking. "Sometimes sooner or later you have got to get done with the discussion and do something and that's kind of where I am with it."

As was previously reported all indications are the Governor is not going to get $1.2 billion to fix the road and will have to settle for a smaller amount.

Mr. Snyder and the two GOP and two democratic leaders continue to search for a so far evasive solution.

All of the GOP agenda will be framed against the back drop of running for re-election next year and that may or may not include some of the things the governor wants.

As Mr. Richardville put it, it's our turn now," said Skubick.
