Constitutional Rewrite?
(2008-07-01)
(wgvu) - Organizers expect to have enough
signatures to get a proposal on the Michigan ballot that would
reduce the number of state lawmakers and appellate judges.
The proposal also would cut the pay of legislators, judges, the
governor and other elected officials; set up a different way to
draw legislative districts; and cap the number of state
departments.
Many of the changes would affect the state constitution.
A spokeswoman for Reform Michigan Government Now said Tuesday
the group expects to turn in more than 380,000 valid voter
signatures next Monday, the deadline to qualify for the November
election.
Michigan Republicans say the proposal is an attempt by Democrats
to control the courts by tossing out Republican judges.
