The Michigan Part-Time Legislature Amendment did not make the November 6, 2012 statewide ballot in Michigan as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment.

Reports indicated that efforts were made to qualify the measure for the 2011 ballot, however it was not successfully certified for that year.

The proposed measure would have changed the state legislature to part-time status, would reduce compensation and eliminate benefits.[1] It would amend Sections 12 and 13 of Article IV of the Michigan Constitution. Additionally it would add Section 55 to Article IV.[2]

Rep. Tom McMillin was the primary sponsor of the proposed amendment. Other sponsors included Reps. Mike Shirkey, Kurt Heise, Ken Goike, Martin Knollenberg, Amanda Price, David Agema, Margaret O'Brien, Andrea LaFontaine.
