Mackinac Center President Joseph G. Lehman in a Detroit Free Press Op-Ed today addresses the issue of recall elections for legislators.

Lehman points out that a measure recently introduced in the state House aims to change the Michigan Constitution and would severely limit voters' ability to recall lawmakers.

“The voters' right to recall lawmakers, for expressly political reasons, is a potent check against government overreach that the people should jealously guard irrespective of party,” Lehman states.
