    Voters, Job Providers ask Court of Appeals to Protect Michigan's Constitution

    Lansing, MI, August22, 2012-- Taxpayers and job providers asked the state Court of Appeals to protect Michigan's Constitution by keeping an intentionally deceptive attempt by union bosses to hijack Michigan's constitution off the November ballot.

    "Union bosses and out of state special interests are dropping a deceptive Pandora's box in front of Michigan voters and begging them to open it," said Jim Holcomb, J.D., Senior Vice President and General Counsel of the Michigan Chamber of Commerce.  "The union lawyers behind this deceptive proposal freely admit they don't know how many laws their scheme will overturn, how many constitutional provisions it will rewrite, and what the consequences of their unconstitutional proposal will even be. That approach is reckless, deceptive and unconstitutional.  Voters, taxpayers and job providers have had enough of these special interest gimmicks and attempts to hijack their constitution."

    As the Mackinac Center points out, "The proposed amendment would primarily affect the unionization of state and local government employees, since private-sector unionization is governed by federal law. "

    And that is the point.  A solidified, locked in union presence creating a new power structure that would hamstring the ability of the state to manage its affairs efficiently.

    Stay tuned.
