The Grand Rapids Press reports that some state legislators are seeking a three-day period in which to review bills before voting on them. The Press cites Mackinac Center Senior Legislative Analyst Jack McHugh, who said: "It is the rare bill where there is not a substitute. The minority members, most members, haven't seen that substitute, and Joe Citizen doesn't have access to it. Legislators very often don't know what they are voting on."

McHugh also expressed hope that legislators would be "sincere in their transparency talk" and work together to solve any difficulties with the proposal.
