A long-sought expansion of the state's civil rights law to include lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Michiganders — supported by the business community, LGBT activists and lawmakers on both sides of the aisle — seems to be dead in the water. Who needs equality, anyway?
But name any piece of irrelevant, unnecessary legislation, and hoo boy, it's on the move.
Perhaps this is Lansing's new motto: We solve problems you didn't know you had.
More like "making problems you never had," but I digress. Anyway:
Better still, let's hope this class of legislators has more in mind for its swan song than peculiar, small-minded acts that only cement its legacy as one of the least useful groups of lawmakers in Michigan history.
