Yep…it happened. In 6.75 years of serving, I’ve never walked out of a committee save for having to attend an overlapping committee.
And it was either burst in to flames in anger or burst into tears in sorrow (or both) at the sheer cruel audacity of legislators 1/

Michigan, hear this retired critical care nurse emotionally urge people everywhere to get their COVID-19 vaccine – a privilege we’re so fortunate to have. A privilege his friends did not.

Abortion rights, voting rights, and other things Republicans hate

We stand with @GovWhitmer in calling on the legislature to repeal the 1930's abortion ban in Michigan by passing SB 70, introduced by @SenErikaGeiss. This is necessary for the protection and health of all pregnant people in Michigan.

Texas' SB 1 is a voter suppression law that violates the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Voting Rights Act, and First, Fourteenth, and Fifteenth Amendments. And we're suing.

Political notes

Let the word go out to Republicans in the state houses, Congress, and at Mar-a-Lago:

If you spread lies and try to subvert our democracy, we will stop you.

Just as we did in California, with Gov. Newsom.

We cherish our republic more than you wish to destroy it.

Back on @RedistrictingMI beat today. Work on the state Senate continues. The body mostly tinkered with the Detroit area yesterday. A few commenters this morning said they like what the commission did with the Saginaw-Bay City-Midland tri-city district, so that's a win for them.
