LANSING, Mich. (WOOD) — Michigan senators are considering legislation that would designate a state fruit, according to WILX out of Lansing.

Tuesday, a Senate committee considered bills that would make the state fruit either the cherry or the blueberry, WILX reports.

Senators Rebekah Warren (D-Ann Arbor) and Tonya Schuitmaker (R-Lawton) weighed in before the committee Tuesday, WILX said, with Warren advocating for cherries and Schuitmaker advocating for blueberries.

About 100 students wore either blue or red shirts to the Tuesday hearing to show their support for either blueberries or cherries, according to WILX.

The bills were tabled for the committee’s next meeting, WILX said.

WILX reports the committee also discussed a bill to make Mackinac Island fudge the official state sweet.
