SBAM urges Supreme Court to overturn Court of Appeals decision

August 28, 2012

The Small Business Association of Michigan (SBAM) urged the Michigan Supreme Court to overturn Monday’s disappointing Court of Appeals decision that leaves the “Protect Our Jobs” proposal on the fall ballot. “This proposal is so far-reaching that citizens would have a very difficult time understanding the implications of passage from reading a 100-word ballot description,” says SBAM President and CEO Rob Fowler. “The proposal would take away the authority of the Legislative to approve any law that could be potentially be part of collective bargaining. That’s an unprecedented and, we believe, clearly unconstitutional usurpation of the role of the Legislature.” 

SBAM is part of Citizens Protecting Michigan’s Constitution (CPMC), a growing and diverse group of voters, taxpayers, job providers, individuals, local chambers of commerce and other organizations. CPMC is committed to educating Michigan families about unprecedented attempts to radically overhaul the state’s constitution through new, misleading ballot initiatives.
