    From CapCon:

    "A resolution has been introduced in Lansing that would strip voters of their rights to recall public officials for policy decisions.

    The bill, Senate Joint Resolution S, states specifically, "The discretionary performance of a lawful act or of a prescribed duty by an elective officer does not constitute a reason to recall that elective officer." This would mean that lawmakers couldn't be recalled for political reasons.

    The measure then lays out the reasons for which an elective official could be recalled. They would be limited to those guilty of felonies or a misdemeanor involving a breach of a public trust like those who have misappropriated resources or committed "any other official misconduct."

    SJR S is sponsored by Senate Majority Floor Leader Arlan Meekhof, R-West Olive, and co-sponsored by Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville, R-Monroe."
