LANSING, Mich., June 30, 2021 — Today, the House and Senate adjourned for their summer in-district work period. Republican leaders sent bills containing flood relief to each other’s chambers, but neither took up the other’s bills. In response, House Democratic Leader Donna Lasinski (D-Scio Township) issued the following statement:

“I simply cannot believe that Republicans left town again without doing their jobs. For six months, Democrats have called for bringing home federal COVID relief dollars, and for six months, Republican leadership have bounced bills between these chambers without getting help to families. Now, our families are literally underwater across lower Michigan, and no help is coming. Democrats are fighting for families, but Republicans are more interested in their vacation plans.”
