Ballot measures the Mackinac Center would support

The Michigan Supreme Court ruling that keeps the Reform Michigan Government Now proposal off the ballot has focused attention on the ballot measure process itself. RMGN — rejected by the court for technical reasons — was extraordinarily bad public policy, but that doesn’t mean citizen-led initiatives are bad.

The right ballot measures would let voters bypass legislators who are unwilling or unable to fix Michigan’s urgent problems.
