Michigan legislators sworn in Wednesday

Jan 10, 2019

LANSING, MI (MPRN)--   Michigan Supreme Court Chief Justice Stephen Markman was busy swearing in lawmakers Wednesday, on the first day of the state's 100th legislative session.  

State legislators were all smiles on the ceremony-heavy opening day. But the next few years could be marked by more division than the last eight, when Republicans controlled most of state government.

In November's election Democrats took the governor's, attorney general’s and secretary of state’s offices, while Republicans held onto slim majorities in the state house and senate.
