LANSING, MI. (WLNS) – Local officials will be gathering at the Michigan Municipal League Offices in Lansing Tuesday to voice their concerns about a senate bill limiting what they can say about ballot issues.
The bill, which already passed the House and Senate, will now makes its way to the governor’s desk.
Senate Bill 571 would prevent local governments from handing out information about ballot issues 60 days before they go up for a vote.
Local officials are opposed to it saying they need to be able to inform the public right up to voting day.
They will meet at 11 a.m. to voice their concerns and call on Governor Snyder to veto it.
