It turns out Michigan lawmakers aren't quite done with their lame-duck session after all.
Both the Democratic-led House and Republican-led Senate will convene Wednesday. They're expected to tie up loose ends on legislation they didn't completely finish before hastily adjourning and declaring their two-year session over on Dec. 3.
The House is expected to deal with legislation cracking down on human trafficking and a few other issues. The Senate will deal with bills that can't be sent to Gov. Jennifer Granholm because they didn't get an immediate effect vote or because they were changed by the House.
Lawmakers aren't expected to take up insurance coverage for autism, teacher tenure rules or other sensitive subjects that were left unaddressed before adjourning earlier this month. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
