LANSING -- Michigan lawmakers still are figuring out which legislation they plan to pass during their final days of the 2009-10 session.
Lawmakers assembled at the state Capitol on Wednesday to continue prioritizing legislation.
It's a safe bet lawmakers will pass a bill to distribute more than $300 million in federal money to schools. But the future of several other bills is unclear.
Bills dealing with teacher tenure, fireworks sales, insurance coverage for autism treatments and dozens of other items could be voted on before the Legislature adjourns at the end of the week.
It's possible lawmakers will pass a bill that would allow the Detroit Institute of Arts to ask voters to raise money through property taxes. A similar bill has passed to help the Detroit Zoo.
