State board approves petition to recall Governor Snyder

LANSING, MI (WLNS) – The Michigan State Board of Canvassers has approved another petition seeking to recall Gov. Rick Snyder, citing Snyder’s declaration of a state of emergency in Flint after lead leached from the pipes into the city’s water supply.

The board approved the petition Monday from the Rev. David Bullock of Detroit. He filed the petition on Feb. 8 after the board rejected eight petitions to recall the Republican governor.

The board also approved one recall petition unrelated to the lead contamination crisis in Flint earlier this month and was split on another 2-2, which failed because it lacked majority approval.

Bullock would need to collect at least 789,133 signatures. If approved, the recall effort would become a ballot question that would then need majority support from voters.
