Chamber Issues Statement Regarding Legislative Term Limits and Government Accountability

September 27, 2017

The Michigan Chamber of Commerce 2020 Strategic Plan calls on the Michigan Chamber to embrace government accountability. Earlier today, the Chamber’s Board of Directors reviewed and discussed legislative term limits and government accountability. Michigan Chamber President & CEO Rich Studley issued the following statement regarding this subject.  

“The Michigan Chamber’s Board of Directors today voted to direct Chamber staff to reach out to other individuals and groups to determine if there is sufficient organizational and financial support to move forward next year with a possible amendment to the State Constitution regarding term limits and government accountability. This government reform effort could focus on revising term limits and other changes to improve the effectiveness, accountability and transparency of the state legislature. The specifics of this government accountability proposal remain to be determined. Chamber staff will report back to the Board of Directors in January 2018.”
