Twenty years ago Republican David Jaye stood in my driveway and told me legislators were going to eliminate their lifetime medical benefits.  This bill is a start, but it does not address that issue.  How is it that the item pricing law which affects everyone in Michigan can be overturned in less than a week, and lifetime medical benefits for legislators, an issue that affects less than 150 of you is still not resolved after 20 years?

 This is a wise and appropriate mandate. It has been a long time in coming, and I hope it passes.
