Lt. Gov. Brian Calley is starting over his effort to make Michigan’s Legislature part-time with newly drafted petition language.
The move means that all the signatures collected so far in support for the proposal can be nullified.
In a statement, issued on July 4, Calley said the Clean Michigan Government Committee is revising its language to ensure voters get to decide the issue.
“The Lansing establishment has gone to great lengths to try to stall this effort, but we are standing with the people,” Calley said. “We have learned a lot about the legal strategy that opponents plan to use in court to try and defeat this effort and have decided to take every step to ensure voters have their say on this important reform.”
