2012 Michigan Votes On Renewable Energy
Bruce Goodman from Varnum Law reported that a petition is being circulated. It asks to place an alternative energy question before Michigan voters this November. The coalition, the Michigan League of Conservation Voters, seeks to add a Michigan constitutional amendment. The amendment is to ensure that 25% of the state’s energy is generated by renewable sources.
On January 20th, the Michigan Board of Canvassers gave the approval to circulate petitions. This will put the question of Michigan generating 25% of energy from renewable sources by 2025. The measure asks to place it on the November ballot.
The petition drive must collect more than 300,000 valid signatures in order to get the question on the ballot.
