GreenStone Opposes MI Proposal 1
Bookmark and Share

Vote “NO” on Proposition 1 which asks if Michigan should convene a Constitutional Convention for the purpose of drafting general revision of the state constitution.


MI Proposition 1:
Should MI convene a Constitutional Convention

The November 2 ballot will include several proposals for voter decision. In Michigan, the first of these, Proposition 1, asks if Michigan should convene a Constitutional Convention for the purpose of drafting general revision of the state constitution.

GreenStone FCS is among numerous organizations and individuals who oppose the proposal. Though many believe Michigan government needs change, we believe this can happen in a more fiscally responsible way. A political convention to rewrite the state constitution is not the preeminent solution.

A few reasons to Vote No on Proposal 1:
  1. It is estimated the convention would cost taxpayers at least $45 million to elect delegates and conduct the convention.
  2. Rather than working to fix Michigan’s problems, the new governor and legislation will essentially be put on hold while the process of the constitutional convention completed.
  3. A two-year convention process will create more uncertainty for Michigan job providers and schools. Investments, new initiatives and reforms will also come to a halt.
