The State Senate goes back to work for one day today.  They will consider a number of loose ends before breaking for the fall campaign.

The senators may take up the referendums pending on another wolf hunt in the UP this fall.   Two referendums would stop the hunt.  But senators may change existing law and make those petitions moot, allowing hunt to go forward. 

That's what they did a year ago.   The third petition would ask votes if the vote should proceed.  If all three questions appear on the ballot, the one that gets the most votes would win.

Governor Snyder told Wood Radio news he had no position on any vote, but he did allow the hunt to go ahead a year ago.

The people trying to stop the hunt say nearly a half million Michiganders signed those petitions and if the Senate thwarts their efforts, they may sue.
