Massachusetts Governor Maura Healey’s suitcase continues to get a workout. She is leaving for Atlantic City on Wednesday for the National Governors Association meeting, and aides now say she will travel to Michigan later this week.

Healey plans to return to Massachusetts on Sunday night. Lieutenant Governor Kim Driscoll will again serve as acting governor.

In Michigan, Healey plans on Friday, July 14 to meet with the Michigan Women’s Commission and “fellow governors,” according to Healey’s office. The advisory didn’t specify a location in Michigan, and a Healey aide didn’t immediately respond to State House News Service questions about what the trip entails, including what topics will be discussed.

The commission consists of 15 members focused on “critical problems confronting women, and recognizing women’s accomplishments and contributions to Michigan,” according to its web site.

In late June, Healey spent a week in Ireland on a trade trip, followed by a trip to Rhode Island during the Fourth of July week.

Healey has been out of Massachusetts for 27 nights since taking office, Massachusetts Playbook reported earlier Wednesday, July 12.

In between returning from Rhode Island and leaving for New Jersey, the governor held an event Monday, July 10 related to the Sumner Tunnel closure and traffic backups that it is causing, and then traveled by helicopter to western Massachusetts earlier Wednesday for a brief tour to evaluate flood damage. The governor’s big spending and policy plans — her annual budget and tax relief proposals — remain tied up in negotiations between House and Senate Democrats.
