This is historical.
Even though the bill is sine die, it was read twice and referred to Committee. It is being fast-tracked. Please take notice that there is no Social Welfare Commission and its powers were transfered to, well I assume you can say, were absorbed with the Director, I guess.
Perhaps, the state will resurrect the Social Welfare Commission, a citizen panel of oversight of Michigan Children's Institute...after Governor Snyder does not allow Bill Johnson, the Superintendent to come back to the administration.
Thank you Senator Scott for making history for Michigan, and the rest of the world.
