How Legislative Committees Work, and What Advocates Should Know
Wednesday, Jan. 18, 2023
How much do you know about committee work in the state Legislative process? When it comes to the work of the state House and Senate, there are dozens of standing committees that are organized at the start of each two-year session to hear testimony and develop legislation important to Michigan residents.

And how can child advocates approach legislative committees in the best interest of the causes we champion?

Wednesday, Dec. 14, 2022
Anything can happen in the closing days of a Legislative Lame Duck session – that brief time following an election when Legislators try one last time to push through bills before their session ends for the year. However, this year’s Lame Duck at the state Capitol didn’t produce hoped-for changes in mental health service reforms or the EITC, said Michigan’s Children’s Bobby Dorigo Jones. In contrast, the Lame Duck session in Congress did send feathers flying with a flurry of action around a bipartisan and bicameral agreement on setting a new budget framework for next year, said Matt Gillard, President & CEO.
