Michigan Supreme Court asks for briefs on private school refunds

LANSING — The Michigan Supreme Court issued an order Wednesday asking for briefs on two questions: Whether the court should grant Gov. Rick Snyder’s request for an advisory opinion on whether reimbursing private schools for state-ordered expenses violates the Michigan constitution; and, if the justices do agree to consider the question, how they should rule.

The court wants the Attorney General's Office to present briefs arguing both sides of each question, which is not uncommon when the court asks for an advisory opinion. The court also invited briefs from "the Governor and any member of the House or Senate."

Briefs are to be filed by Aug. 26, the court said.

Snyder asked the court on July 13 for the advisory opinion about the budget he signed in June, but which does not take effect until Oct. 1, when the 2016-17 fiscal year begins.
