LANSING, Mich. – The Michigan Senate will not get this summer off.

Senate Majority Floor Leader Mike Kowall (R-White Lake) announced that the legislative body will meet several times in June, July, and August.

"After a careful review of our goals, I found it to be unreasonable to expect that we can accomplish our work without the addition of these session days," Kowall said in a statement. "So the Senate will be here in Lansing this summer, working hard to complete the tasks before us."

The state Senate now will be in session:

  • June 16 – 18, 23 – 25, 30
  • July 1 – 2, 7 – 9, 14 – 16, 21 – 23
  • Aug. 11 – 13, 18 – 20, 25 – 27
  • Sept. 1 – 3

Previously, they had been scheduled to be in recess on those days.
