House passes 23 bills to limit, repeal emergency authorities

Lansing − The Michigan House on Wednesday adopted 23 bills from a 30-bill package seeking to overhaul references to emergency powers in Michigan’s statutory framework in the wake of the Whitmer administration’s exercise of emergency authority during the pandemic.

The bills, passed largely along party lines in the Republican-controlled House, seek to amend or repeal laws across several departments that give executives the authority to adopt temporary rules limiting various activities or requiring certain notices during an emergency.

The House passed the first seven bills of the 30-bill package on July 1, the last day the body was in session before their summer break. Those bills were moved out of Senate Oversight Committee to the Senate floor on Wednesday morning.

House Republicans on social media said the bills would “strengthen oversight and accountability” when the state uses executive authority during an emergency.
