Skubick: Lawmakers Back In Town To Debate Wolf Hunting

Posted: Updated:
LANSING, MI (WLNS) - Michigan lawmakers return to town this week for a one day session that will include an emotional debate on wolf hunting.

We asked 6 News Capitol Correspondent Tim Skubick to take a look at that and the rest of the week's agenda from the Capitol.

The two candidates for governor are in the Upper Peninsula campaigning this week and the debate over debates has commenced.

Mr. Schauer has agreed to an evening debate at the Detroit Economic Club on October 13.

Mr. Snyder has agreed to the date but at noon, and not 7 p.m.. So far the disagreement has not been ironed out.

Meanwhile this has been the scene at the state Capitol most of the summer with lawmakers on the campaign trail

But on Wednesday everyone is back to debate a plan that would allow wolf hunting and if lawmakers say yes.

That vote would in effect kill two other proposals on the ballot in November that would ban wolf hunting.  The two sides were having at it this week.

A special work group with the senate top and democrat leaders at the helm could begin this week on finding money to do what else, fix the roads, a six person work group that was supposed to meet in July never did.

Senate republican leader Randy Richardville promises the members on the work group want to raise revenue.

“All of the people on the work group voted for new revenue for the roads. I want people who are ready to act not make excuses,” said State Representative Randy Richardville, senate republican leader.

The political future of Lt. Governor Brian Calley is on the line as he battles the tea party. Some elements want to remove him from the ticket this fall and replace him with Wes Nakagiri from the tea party. That showdown is set for August 23.
