Michigan Lawmakers Continue Working On Overhaul Of Michigan Energy Laws

Michigan lawmakers are wrapping up the last day of the two year term in Lansing.

One of the top items on Governor Snyder’s agenda is pushing for an overhaul of Michigan’s energy laws.

The governor met with the House GOP at the capitol overnight.

While leaving the legislative chamber after five Thursday morning, he simply said "we’re still working."

A potential deal between electric utilities and their competitors is signaling that lawmakers are close to rewriting 2008 energy laws.

They govern the regulation of power providers, require minimum amounts of renewable sources of electricity and set efficiency benchmarks.
