(11/07/12) - There was a clear message from Michigan voters Tuesday night: Hands off the state constitution.
All six proposals were defeated.
Proposal 1 would have given the Governor the right to appoint an emergency financial manager to municipalities or school districts in a budget crisis. 52 percent said 'no', while 48 percent supported the measure. For more on Proposal 1, click HERE.
Proposal 2 would have given public and private employees the right to organize and bargain collectively through labor unions. 58 percent of voters say 'no.'
Proposal 3 would have established a standard for renewable energy, but that's also been rejected with a 63 percent 'no' vote.
Proposal 4 has been defeated with 57 percent of the voters saying 'no.' It would have granted bargaining rights to in-home care workers.
Proposal 5 was intended to limit the enactment of new taxes by state government, but voters didn't like that one either, turning it down with a 69 percent 'no' vote.
Proposal 6, known as the bridge proposal, was also soundly defeated with a 60 percent 'no' vote. It would have let voters weigh in on proposals to build new international bridges or tunnels.
