Michigan lawmakers return for committee meetings

Michigan lawmakers are returning to Lansing for a day of committee meetings.

No attendance is being taken at House and Senate sessions, where more minor business is expected to occur such as the introduction of legislation.

Legislators have scheduled few meeting days this summer while preparing for the August primary.

Committees on Wednesday plan to consider medical marijuana bills and legislation related to school districts with budget deficits. Another panel will look at bills to require the licensing of genetic counselors and allow for-profit nursing homes to directly employ physicians.

Gov. Rick Snyder and Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville met Tuesday to discuss Snyder's concerns with electronic cigarette legislation that lawmakers approved in June but stopped short of sending to his desk.
