All signs point to death of controversial campaign finance commission bills
The Legislature’s lame duck session ends Thursday night – and a controversial bill likely won’t make it through.
Legislation passed by the Senate would take away campaign finance oversight from the secretary of state – and instead give it to a bipartisan commission.
The bills were waiting for a committee hearing in the House. Representative Aaron Miller (R-Macomb) chairs the committee. He says his committee won’t take up the bill.
“I think that current process works well. And I think that there were issues with the bills.”
Lawmakers do have the option of discharging the bills to the House floor for a vote – bypassing the committee process.
The only thing a spokesperson for House Republicans would say is, “It’s not on the agenda today."
