If some Michigan laws were enforced, lots of Michiganders could end up in jail.

But lawmakers are trying once again to repeal a law that makes it a crime for an unmarried couple to live together in a “lewd and lascivious manner.”

The penalty for the misdemeanor crime, which is no longer enforced, is up to one year in jail and a $1,000 fine.

The bill was introduced last year also and easily made it out of the Senate Judiciary Committee, but never got a vote in the full Senate.

Other bills introduced last week would amend the state's Elliott Larsen civil rights act to include a prohibition on discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. It's another bill that has been introduced in several of the last legislative sessions, but won't get a vote in the Republican-controlled Senate or House of Representatives.
