Michigan "Fair Use of Ballot Referendum" Amendment (2014)
|Not on Ballot|
| This measure did not or |
will not appear on a ballot
The measure was sponsored by Voters for Fair Use of Ballot Referendum.
- Bill Lucas, founder Voters for Fair Use of Ballot Referendum, argued that the amendment is needed because "politicians are adding token amounts of spending into otherwise non-budgetary laws in order to keep them referendum-proof. This is side-stepping voters’ rights that have been in our constitution for 100 years."
