Proposed Amendment in Michigan Would Create a Part-time Legislature
A statewide petition to amend the Michigan Constitution was approved by the Michigan Board of State Canvassers last week. The proposed amendment would institute a part-time state Legislature and limit legislative sessions to 60 days, lawmaker salaries to $35,000, and total legislative staffers to 250.
The committee seeking the amendment must collect at least 322,609 signatures in order to get the amendment on the ballot in November.
