Petition to Place Ballot Initiative on Alternative Energy Starts Up


Bruce Goodman from Varnum Law reports that a petition is being circulated to place an alternative energy question before Michigan voters this November. The coalition, the Michigan League of Conservation Voters seeks to add a constitutional ammendment to ensure that 25% of the state’s energy is generated by renewable sources.

On January 20th, the Michigan Board of Canvassers gave approval to circulate petitions to put the question of Michigan generating 25% of energy from renewable sources by 2025 and place it on the November ballot.

The petition drive must collect more than 300,000 valid signatures to get the question on the ballot.
