Miller legislation moves to Senate

State Rep. Aaron Miller last week praised his colleagues in the Michigan House of Representatives for approving his legislation to prevent state representatives and senators who resign from office from running in the special election called to fill the seat.
Miller, who chairs the House Elections and Ethics Committee, said the legislation simply clarifies that when an elected official resigns or is removed from legislative office, the resignation or removal remains in effect for the remainder of the term.
Miller said the bill eliminates a loophole some former legislators have used in the past. Similar legislation was approved by the Michigan House of Representatives in 2016, but never made it to the governor’s desk.
House Bill 4208 now moves to the Senate for consideration.
