Posted by: Jennifer Gomori Posted date: September 23, 2016

This edition of the Karoub Report highlights the following legislative initatives: Attorney General Bill Schuette’s emergency appeal to keep a ban on straight ticket voting in place was denied by the U.S. Supreme Court; the State Board of Education approved a document advising Michigan’s public schools to allow transgender students to use the bathroom and locker room corresponding to their gender; Representative Thomas Hooker (R-Byron Center) wants to raise the tax on beer; the Senate passed and sent to the House a four bill package (SBs 995 through 998) designed to authorize the testing of autonomous vehicle research on 122 miles of Michigan roads; and Michigan’s emergency manager law is here to stay unless the nation’s highest court rules otherwise.
