Six proposals on November ballot - ABC 12 – WJRT – Flint, MI

Six proposals on November ballot

Posted: Updated:

(09/06/12) - The Michigan Board of State Canvassers are scheduled to meet Friday to finalize the Nov. 6 ballot, and besides all the races on the ballot, Michigan voters will find six proposals.

The first proposal was officially put on the ballot on Aug. 3, and the one people in Flint are probably most aware of involves the Emergency Manager Law. Voters will decide whether or not to repeal Public Act 4, which broadened the powers of emergency managers in Michigan.

25 by 25 would require electric utilities provide at least 25 percent of their annual retail sales of electricity from renewable resources, like wind and solar power, by the year 2025.

Another proposal would authorize unionization and collective bargaining rights for home health care workers.

A collective bargaining proposal would protect and expand collective bargaining rights, and would block Michigan from becoming a "right-to-work" state.

Another would require a majority of voters to approve any international bridge or tunnel proposal before the state of Michigan puts any money into one.

A tax hike super majority proposal would require a two-thirds vote in both state legislatures to raise or create any new taxes.
