The Legislature has gone on break for a week but as soon as they come back, the Senate will consider a long simmering ethics complaint against GOP Sen. Geoff Michel.

The Senate Subcommittee on Ethical Conduct will continue discussing whether Michel breached Senate ethics rules at an April 16 hearing at 10 am. A Democratic complaint alleges Michel mishandled the affair between former Majority Leader Amy Koch and former staffer Michael Brodkorb late last year.

The committee, made up of two Republicans and two Democrats, took up the complaint last month but deadlocked. Then GOP members failed to show up for a meeting scheduled to continue discussions. Since then, Senate Republicans had offered no clarity on if or when discussion would continue.
