Statewide Issues on the November General Election Ballot: Proposal 2010-01

The Citizens Research Council of Michigan has released the sixteenth paper in a series focusing on constitutional issues. CRC is examining the state’s Constitution in anticipation of this November’s vote on whether Michigan should convene a constitutional convention.

Over the past nine months, CRC has laid out the process that is established for a constitutional convention, looked at Michigan’s constitutional history, and analyzed each article of the constitution. We have identified obsolete provisions in our current constitution and issues that are likely to be at the forefront of a constitutional convention. This final paper pulls all of the previous papers together for a quick and easy look at the ballot question before the voters.

“Our analysis of the 1963 Michigan Constitution did not identify anything that could be identified as a constitutional crisis,” said Jeffrey P. Guilfoyle, CRC’s President. “But there are many issues that could be addressed to improve the operations of state and local governments in our state.”
