LANSING, Mich. — Attorney General Dana Nessel will be speaking to the Michigan Supreme Court this week.

Nessel will be making arguments on the constitutionality of two controversial ballot measures.

The State House and Senate asked the court to weigh in on changes to minimum wage and sick time laws, which were both passed during last year's lame-duck session.

The court wants Nessel to argue for and against the "adopt and amend" process.

Those arguments are set for Wednesday morning.
