Michigan Legislators missed 1,093 votes in 2013
Michigan legislators missed 1,093 votes in 2013, according to the new “Missed Votes Report” compiled by Jack McHugh, editor of MichiganVotes.org.
That is in stark comparison to the 21,000 votes lawmakers missed during the 2001-2002 legislative session when MichiganVotes.org first started.
“The days of some legislators no longer showing up for work are long past,” McHugh said. “Legislators’ habits changed almost immediately when MichiganVotes.org began making this information easily accessible.”
