IJP: State Legislature on track to meet fewest number of days since 2002

The Michigan Legislature meets today, but don't hold your breath expecting a whole lot to happen.

Our It's Just Politics team of Zoe Clark and Rick Pluta joined us today to take a look at the attendance card for the state Legislature. 

Clark told us that the House is scheduled to meet 80 days while the Senate scheduled 83, for a total of 163 days this session. That's more than 40 days short of the average 205 days per session. 

GUESTS Zoe Clark is Michigan Radio's interim program director and co-host of It's Just Politics. Rick Pluta covers Michigan's Capitol, government and politics for the Michigan Public Radio Network. He also co-hosts It's Just Politics. He tweets @rickpluta.
