Chamber Disappointed with MI Supreme Court Ruling Regarding Redistricting Ballot Proposal

August 1, 2018

The Michigan Chamber of Commerce issued the following statement in response to the Michigan Supreme Court's ruling that the redistricting ballot proposal is eligible for the November General Election ballot: 

"The Michigan Chamber is very disappointed with the State Supreme Court decision that the redistricting ballot proposal met the legal requirements to appear on the November General Election ballot,” said Michigan Chamber President & CEO Rich Studley. “Unfortunately, Michiganders are now left to wonder what the rules are for future petition drives and ballot proposals.”

“We accept the Court’s decision and the Michigan Chamber will take no further legal action regarding this ballot proposal,” said Jim Holcomb, Executive Vice President and General Counsel for the Michigan Chamber.
