On and off the ballot in Michigan



Some news coverage and commentary on the state Court of Appeals' ruling that will keep a radical, partisan scheme to reorganize Michigan's government off the ballot. The court ruled that the proposed constitutional amendment amounts to a "general revision" of the state's Constitution, which requires a constitutional convention. We can expect Reform Michigan Government Now to appeal, with minimal prospects of success; the labor-backed group was trying to reorganize state government so its allies in the Democratic Party could control the next round of redistricting.
