Should Michigan Cut Lawmakers’ Hours (and Pay)?
Michigan Lieutenant Governor Brian Calley is among those leading a charge for a part-time legislature in Michigan.
Calley announced his support for the effort during an annual gathering on Mackinac Island in May. Since then, he has been on a tour publicly calling for a 2018 ballot measure to amend the state Constitution in order to cut Michigan lawmakers' hours as well as their salaries.
The idea - called the "Clean Michigan Government" proposal - would cut legislators' pay by about half, according to the Detroit News. Calley was quoted in the News article as saying "There'll be plenty of time to do the state's business."
Calley will discuss it on 95.3 WBCK Wednesday, July 26 at 8:54 a.m. Meanwhile, what do you think? Should lawmakers in Michigan work part time? Or does part-time work mean part-time results?
We'll discuss your social media comments and take your calls Tuesday (July 25) after the 8 a.m. news on 95.3 WBCK.
