Introduced by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer on October 1, 2013 To adjourn the 2013 legislative session immediately (rather than the usual time in the last week of December), so that the Obamacare Medicaid expansion can go into effect at the start of 2014. When the legislature approved the expansion in August they did not give the measure "immediate effect," which means it cannot go into effect for three months after the legislature adjourns for the year.
