Michigan lawmakers are working on passing their own Religious Freedom Act, states wwmt.com. The legislation is called Senate Bill No. 4. It has been introduced and is now in committee.

The TV show Flashpoint in Michigan had a discussion Sunday about a religious freedom bill coming to Michigan.
Devin Scillian was joined by Randy Richardville, Stephen Henderson, Jill Alper and Sandy Baruah to talk about religious freedom acts and whether one might be coming to Michigan.
Richardville, a former Michigan Senate majority leader, said that he doesn’t think that Indiana’s situation will have a major effect on the state of Michigan.
Alper, a political strategist, talked about the governor’s reaction to the increasing talks about religious freedom acts and what it means moving forward.
Baruah, the President and CEO of Detroit Regional Chamber, says that this issue is very bad for business. He said having laws like this in place prevents the best workers from coming into the state.
Henderson, of the Detroit Free Press, said that the issue has become more aggressive and assertive and talked about what could happen to settle the case.

According to WSBT.com and the South Bend Tribune, a Michigan man went on a shooting spree Saturday night, leaving nearby homes riddled with bullet holes.
That was followed by an apparent standoff ending with the gunman supposedly setting fire to his home and turning the weapon on himself.
Neighbors described the man as a “doomsday prepper.” Michigan State Police say it all unfolded at a home in a mobile home park.
A fire combined with what some eyewitnesses say was the sound of thousands of rounds of gunfire going off inside one trailer, almost sounding like 4th of July fireworks. The smell of gunpowder was thick in the air.
When the smoke finally cleared police found one man dead inside.
The first complaint was about shots fired, but it turned into so much more.
When troopers arrived, they did hear gunshots and then saw smoke and later flames, which engulfed the home and apparently started setting off ammunition explosions inside.
The only death was that of the shooter.
