Final Day Of Voting To Be Busy In Mich. Capitol

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan lawmakers are preparing to pass a flurry of bills on the last day of voting in 2013.

Big legislation that could win final approval Thursday would expand a state reform school district to failing schools beyond Detroit and ease the potential discontinuation of traditional land line service.

Legislators also plan to update campaign laws heading into an election year by doubling donation limits and keeping intact rules for political ads over objections from the secretary of state. A bill intended to make up for the loss of savings because of a Medicaid expansion delay also may clear the Legislature.

Other bills that may be sent to Gov. Rick Snyder would require schools to stock epinephrine pens to treat potentially life-threatening allergic reactions, revise billboard laws and regulate self-driving cars.
