MICHIGAN IS ONE OF THE LEAST TRANSPARENT STATES IN THE NATION. PROPOSAL 1 WILL CHANGE THAT.

Michigan is one of only two states in the nation that don’t require state elected officials to disclose their finances or conflicts of interest.  We have no clue how our most powerful elected officials make their money. Meanwhile, Michigan’s outdated term limits law forces our state legislators to start looking for their next job as a politician or a lobbyist as soon as they get elected. 

The amendment would:

(1) Require Financial Disclosure

Require members of the legislature and the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Secretary of State to disclose their finances.  This proposal would bring Michigan in line with 48 states and Congress that currently require disclosures.

(2) Reduce & Improve Term Limits

Reduce term limits from 14 years to a combined 12 years, the limit on terms of service in the Michigan House of Representatives and Michigan Senate, but allow the entire 12 years to be served in either the House or Senate, which is currently not permitted.
