The Michigan Legislature has been light on lawmaking during the past couple months but is gearing up for a heavy postelection session.

Preparation for the dozen sessions after the Nov. 6 election through the end of the year continues this week, which includes Wednesday's final pre-election session. The meeting is expected to include action by the Senate but no voting by the House, whose members are up for re-election.

Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville says the lame-duck period could include considering medical marijuana regulations and rewriting the law letting emergency managers run local governments. The last would become a priority if voters reject a ballot proposal on it.

The Monroe Republican says a proposed overhaul of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan is expected to be discussed on Wednesday.
