Senate Republican Leader Randy Richardville of Monroe told the Gongwer News Services that the proposed appropriation received a “resounding disapproval” in the Senate Republican caucus. Thursday was the last chance for the legislature to act on the proposal according to Governor Rick Snyder.
As a result, the federal government will take charge of the exchange in Michigan.
