Editorials in both the Port Huron Times-Herald and Livingston Daily Press & Argus about the changes in the Michigan Legislature due to term limits cite research by Senior Legislative Analyst Jack McHugh that first appeared in Michigan Capitol Confidential.

The editorials mention that McHugh “notes 86 percent of the legislative freshmen are “political careerists,” to use his term. For example, 28 of the 29 new senators have held other offices, many of them in the House.”
