MI lawmakers to vote on emergency declaration extension

LANSING, Mich. (WOOD) — State lawmakers, or at least some of them, are heading back to Lansing for a session Tuesday, but it will not look like any session of the legislature any of us have ever seen.

Everyone going into the capitol will be screened. Their temperature and a short questionnaire will be taken.

The day will look like this in the House: Members will check in — think of it as taking attendance — one by one and then will leave the chamber.

That vote is expected to extend the emergency declaration that the governor called for last month.
