    Rep. Marino can attend session despite Rep. Manoogian PPO

    Lansing — A House lawmaker who is the subject of a personal protection order and Michigan State Police investigation will be allowed on the House floor even though the order prevents him from occupying the same property as his accuser, Rep. Mari Manoogian. 

    Republican state Rep. Steve Marino, a 31-year-old Republican from Harrison Township, will be allowed to enter the Capitol for caucus and vote during session, said Gideon D’Assandro, a spokesman for House Speaker Jason Wentworth, R-Farwell.

    Marino also will be allowed to enter the House Office Building to gain access to his office, D’Assandro said. Marino was removed from his committee assignments last week after allegations arose that he threatened Manoogian, a 29-year-old Birmingham Democrat, with whom he had a previous relationship.

    As of Tuesday afternoon, Manoogian had marked herself as present at session but Marino had not.
