In the wee hours of this morning, a declaration of citizenship on ballots was inserted into a bill that would require village elections to be held in November.
The bill passed on a 71-36 vote.
The citizenship box was put on ballots by Secretary of State Ruth Johnson for the presidential primary in February without legislative authority. When the legislature did pass a bill with that requirement, Gov. Rick Snyder vetoed that portion of the bill.
The new citizenship declaration has to go back to the Senate for its concurrence before it can head to Snyder.
