CONSTITUTIONAL REWRITE-GRANHOLM
(2008-07-09)
(wgvu) - Governor Granholm likes parts of a ballot
proposal that would make sweeping changes to state government. But
she has doubts about other portions of it.
"Reform Michigan Government Now" says the constitutional
changes would make state government more efficient by cutting the
number of legislators and judges and trimming pay for many state
elected officials.
The measure appears to have been developed by Democratic
strategists. Republican leaders say it's a sneak attempt to make
the state's top courts and the Legislature more Democratic.
Democrat Granholm says she likes the provisions that would let
people vote absentee without a reason. But she worries black voters
could lose representation if legislative seats are cut.
