Karoub Report – May 2019

Posted by: jgomori Posted date: May 20, 2019


House Democrats are proposing a 40 percent cut in total auto insurance premiums paid by Michigan drivers. The legislation comes after House and Senate Republicans recently passed separate legislation to reform the state’s no-fault auto insurance and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer threatened to veto both bills; In an effort to bypass Gov, Whitmer’s promise to veto legislation to ban dilation and evacuation abortions, Right to Life of Michigan has filed paperwork with the Department of Secretary of State to launch a petition drive; Attorneys for Michigan Republican lawmakers have filed an emergency application with the U.S. Supreme Court to suspend the judgment of a federal court panel on April 25 ordering the state legislature to redraw legislative and congressional districts in Michigan by Aug. 1. Under the ruling, if that date is missed, the court will draw the new maps; Gov. Whitmer signed into law bipartisan legislation, SB 2, HB 4001, and HB 4002 forcing law enforcement to return confiscated goods to suspected drug dealers and others who were never convicted of a crime; Fearing that online betting would negatively impact the state’s i-Lottery, thus costing the State School Aid Fund (SAF) revenue, the Department of Treasury is balking at lending support to the eight bill package of legislation pending in the House.
