As 2018 gets underway, Michigan lawmakers have their hands full with upcoming issues. The Associated Press reports that cutting taxes, wiping clean driver fee debit and improving mental health services are on the top of that list. Another important issue for Republicans is repealing a law that mandates higher “prevailing” wages on construction projects. Democrats want to boost spending on schools and infrastructure, address water-quality problems and hold hearings on Michigan State University’s handling of a sports doctor who sexually abused athletes.
