Michigan Prop 1 supporters outraising opponents; Two-thirds polled say ‘Yes’
The group leading Proposal 1 to change Michigan lawmaker term limits and require top officials disclose their finances has raised about $826,000 in the past three months. Voters for Transparency and Term Limits also spent about $845,000 between July 21 and Oct. 23, according to its pre-election campaign finance filing Friday. Prop 1 would change legislative term limits to allow lawmakers to serve for a total of 12 years, regardless of the chamber. The measure would also require lawmakers, the governor, lieutenant governor, secretary of state and attorney general to file annual financial disclosures, including income, assets and positions outside government. Opponents argue Prop 1 benefits longtime politicians and opens the door for corruption, but supporters say it helps keep good lawmakers in office and provides transparency to officials’ financial interests.mlive.com
