Here’s how your local state lawmakers voted on legislation this week:


House Bill 6137 – Require nursing home coronavirus disclosures and rules: passed 37-0 in the Senate. To require the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services to post coronavirus data for each nursing home in the state on its public website starting Nov. 15. The department would also have to post the nursing home virus historical data it has collected. This would have to include the number of new and cumulative cases among residents and staff for the reporting period, testing regimes, transferred residents, visitation policies and more.
