2018 Senate Bill 1171: Initiated minimum wage law 're-do'
Introduced by Sen. Dave Hildenbrand (R) on November 8, 2018
To delete the provision of a 2018 initiated law that repealed a lower minimum wage imposed of tipped workers, which was 38 percent of the minimum wage for other workers. (Under that law, a tipped-worker’s employer still had to pay the difference between the lower tipped wage amount and the regular minimum wage if tips come up short.) The initiated law was enacted by the legislature in September of 2018 and is now Public Act 337 of 2018.   Official Text and Analysis.
Referred to the Senate Government Operations Committee on November 8, 2018
Reported in the Senate on November 28, 2018
With the recommendation that the substitute (S-2) be adopted and that the bill then pass.
Passed 26 to 11 in the Senate on November 28, 2018.
    See Who Voted "Yes" and Who Voted "No".
To revise an initiated law enacted in Sept. 2018 that increased the state minimum wage mandate. The original version of this law was brought to the legislature by a petition drive, and would have increased the current $9.25 minimum to $12 in 2022, and eliminated a separate lower minimum wage that applies to tipped workers. This bill extends the phase-in of the $12 minimum to 2030, keeps a separate and lower minimum wage for tipped workers (employers must still pay the difference if tips come up short of making the regular minimum wage), and eliminates indexing the minimum wage to inflation. Note: Had the legislature not passed the initiated law in September it would have gone on the November ballot, and if voters had approved the measure any changes would have required a 3/4 supermajority vote in the House and Senate.
Received in the House on November 28, 2018
Referred to the House Michigan Competitiveness on November 28, 2018
Reported in the House on December 4, 2018
Without amendment and with the recommendation that the bill pass.
Substitute offered by Rep. Abdullah Hammoud (D) on December 4, 2018
To adopt the language of the original initiated legislation placed before the legislature by petition (see 2018 Legislative Initiative Petition 4).
The substitute failed by voice vote in the House on December 4, 2018
Amendment offered by Rep. Tim Kelly (R) on December 4, 2018
To adopt a version of the bill that adjusts the minimum wage that would go into effect in 2030 to $12.05, and adjust the separate minimum for tipped workers, which would become 38 percent of the regular minimum, the same as the previous law (employers are still responsible to make up the difference if tips come up short).
The amendment passed by voice vote in the House on December 4, 2018
Passed 60 to 48 in the House on December 4, 2018.
