Greig on term limits lawsuit

Wednesday, November 20, 2019

LANSING, MI Nov. 20, 2019 — This morning eight former members of the Michigan Legislature — four Democrats and four Republicans — filed a federal lawsuit against Michigan’s legislative term limits. In response, House Democratic Leader Christine Greig (D-Farmington Hills) issued the following statement:

“It’s undeniable that term limits have a negative impact on the policymaking process in Lansing, and this issue will ultimately be decided by the voters or the courts. As public trust in elected officials continues to erode, the Legislature must implement common sense, good government measures, including robust financial disclosure for public officials and the expansion of the Freedom of Information Act and the Legislative Open Records Act to increase transparency and accountability.”
