State Board of Canvassers Rules On Ballot Petitions
Monday, 28 July 2014 15:31
The Board of State Canvassers ruled on Thursday... ...that an initiative petition that wanted to raise the state's minimum wage to $10.10 by 2017 doesn't have enough valid signatures to go to the Legislature or on the ballot. ¬† The wage initiative, which was put forth by the Raise Michigan coalition, is strongly indicating it will challenge that ruling in court. ¬† ...and approved the hunter-backed initiative that would protect the Legislature's and Natural Resources Commission's (NRC) abilities to designate wolves and other animals a game species. ¬†But the group trying to overturn the original laws giving the Legislature and NRC that power--Keep Michigan Wolves Protected--is again urging legislators to ignore the newly-certified petition. ¬†If the Legislature doesn't, the initiative would join those referenda on the November ballot and voters will have three wolf hunt-related initiatives to vote on. ...that Proposal 1 will also appear on the August 5 ballot. ¬†It would cut the taxes levied on businesses for equipment and machinery, and would supposedly guarantee that local governments will have that money replaced.
