Michigan Politics blog...

I found a great blog about state business...I will probably be linking to this for more home grown issues.

Based on my previous post about bills and laws in michigan, here's the hot list...one that calls out items we should (IMO) track:

HR 4752 'Terri's Law'
This particular bill allows for an informal request to be granted by the court to block the 'power of attorney' for the ending of life support (or a feeding tube) if the 'guardian' is the 'spouse' and is either: A) Engaged in divorce proceedings or B) Engaged in a publicly acknowledged adulterous relationship...

089 Vander Veen Barb R 517-373-0838 repbarbvanderveen@house.mi.gov

What is this?? Why are the Lemmons' and Sheltrown's and Kehrl's of the legislature supporting this? I say email and call them demanding to know why they've sponsored something to undermine the power of attorney of spouses!"
