Other proposals approved by the States' Supreme Court this afternoon included the 2/3rd Tax Voter measure, requiring 75% of both Houses of the Michigan Legislature to raise taxes or enact a new tax and a ballot vote prior to building a international bridge could be built between Michigan and Canada.
“The Legislature may still enact the laws provided for” in the sections of the constitution cited by opponents, the court said. “But should the amendment pass, the power to do so could be limited by collective-bargaining agreements.”
The Court rejected a fourth measure, which sought an amendment to allow the construction of eight new casinos in the state.
