Column Descriptions

Senate Bill 34: Revise concealed pistol license procedures
to eliminate county concealed pistol licensing boards, and transfer their duties to the State Police and county clerks. A similar bill passed by the previous legislature was vetoed by Gov. Rick Snyder due to some specific provisions which have been removed from this version, including one requiring a concealed pistol license be issued to the target of a personal protection order who is otherwise eligible for the permit
      House Roll Call 16 on Feb. 3, 2015.      Senate Roll Call 5 on Jan. 27, 2015.

Senate Bill 69: Extend business job training subsidy Forever
to extend until 2023 the sunset on a 2008 law that authorized state job training subsidies for particular employers provided through community colleges. Also, to revise details of a minimum wage condition on the subsidies. The House removed a Senate-passed provision prohibiting the beneficiary companies from also collecting certain other state subsidies and tax breaks. Senate Bill 71 would repeal a $50 million annual debt cap on the program
      Senate Roll Call 21 on Jan. 29, 2015.

Senate Bill 86: Extend allowing local debt for pensions
to extend for three years the Dec. 31, 2015 sunset on a law passed in 2012 to allow local governments to borrow money to cover unfunded employee pension liabilities, which is allowed only if the local has closed its traditional “defined benefit” pension system to new employees. The law also allows locals to incur long term debt to pay for future retiree health insurance costs, which unlike pensions are not legally enforceable obligations.
