According to a report in Gongwer, Tom McMillin, the new co-chair of the part-time legislation petition drive, launched a new effort to collect the 315,654 needed signatures to place a constitutional question on the 2018 statewide ballot.

The effort included mailing out over 100,000 petitions to those on a mailing list with hopes that enough of them will sign one and send it back. The “Clean Michigan Government” effort is also recruiting circulators online and will continue to have paid circulators in the field as part of an effort to collect the signatures.
