Calley Calls For Part-Time Legislature

Lt. Governor Brian Calley
State of Michigan website

(MPRN-Mackinac Island) The job of state lawmaker would be part-time under a ballot campaign launched Tuesday by Lieutenant Governor Brian Calley. 

The lieutenant governor gathered a small crowd as he used a business and politics conference on Mackinac Island as the backdrop to his new campaign to make the job of state legislator a part-time gig.

“I’m looking to make the Michigan government much more effective and efficient…”

The ballot question would limit regular legislative sessions to the first three months of the year. The campaign needs to gather more than 315 thousand signatures to get on the 2018 ballot.

Calley is also expected to announce soon that he’s running for Governor.
