Bills to shape voting ballot initiative pass Senate committee

Dec 6, 2018

LANSING, MI (MPRN)--   Republicans in Lansing are moving forward on efforts to shape a ballot initiative that passed during the midterm elections. 

Proposal 3 made numerous changes to Michigan’s election laws – changes supporters say will make voting easier and more accessible.

But lawmakers say there were holes in the proposal and details that need to be ironed out so the proposal can be implemented.

Republican Senator Mike Kowall is a bill sponsor.

“We must codify certain procedures to ensure the integrity of the election process as we implement this into law,” he says.

The main problem opponents have with the bills is that they say they’re moving too quickly, and without sufficient time to review the legislation. They say there’s plenty of time to make any clarifications to the measure next year.
