Dec 30 - Gov. Snyder vetoes bill to strip power from incoming Democratic attorney general
 

 
Gov. Rick Snyder vetoed a bill that would have stripped power from Democratic Attorney General-elect Dana Nessel.

The proposed legislation was among the most controversial introduced during the GOP-controlled legislature's lame duck session. It passed the state Senate and State House largely along party lines in December.

House Bill 6553 would have granted the Republican-led legislature authority to jump into any court case in which residents challenged the GOP's unpopular laws. Nessel previously said she would not use state resources to f*ght for laws that she sees as unconstitutional, such as one that allows adoption agencies to choose not to adopt to same-s*x couples.

Democrats had promised a legal challenge, and many experts viewed the proposed law as clearly unconstitutional because they believe it would've violated the Michigan Constitution's separation of powers clause, which in part states: “No person exercising powers of one branch shall exercise powers properly belonging to another branch, except as expressly provided in this constitution.”

In short, the Republican-led legislature would have been attempting to litigate and enforce the law, which is the job of the executive branch.

A similarly controversial bill that would have stripped power from incoming Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson died in the legislature
