A bill in the Michigan Senate would require Governor Gretchen Whitmer to notify lawmakers if she leaves the state.
The measure is the latest in a series of moves that could be seen to ridicule Whitmer over her trip to Florida to visit her ailing father, a trip that was blasted by critics as hypocritical. Her government had issued travel advice to people in the state in response to the pandemic.
Republicans are still asking Whitmer for more details about the trip, which they refer to as a vacation.
The bill would require her to notify the Senate majority and minority leaders in writing with details about the trip before it happens, as well as details about who would be in charge while she was gone.
