MI Senate Rejects Governor Appointment To Hunting Panel

From the Associated Press — Michigan Senate Republicans have blocked Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s appointee to a commission that regulates hunting and fishing. Democrats say Thursday’s mostly party-line vote rejecting Anna Mitterling of
Mason to the Natural Resources Commission was done because the GOP opposes a different nominee to the commission who supports gun control. It marks the first time in nearly a decade that a governor’s nominee was rejected by the Senate. Whitmer named Mitterling, a Lansing Community College adjunct biology professor, to the commission in December. Whitmer says the vote was “sexist” and “partisan.” Republicans say Mitterling did not do well in interviews.
