The union-backed attempt to rig the Michigan Constitution is drawing state and national media attention after supporters submitted signatures Wednesday to get the measure on the November ballot.

“It is apparent that government unions did not learn anything from the Wisconsin recall vote last week,” Vincent Vernuccio, the Center’s director of labor policy, told CNBC, Bloomberg and CBS News. “Once again they’re pursuing policies that will enshrine special privileges for what amounts to just 3 percent of the population at the expense of the rest of us.”

The Oakland Press, MLive, Downriver Sunday TimesWJBF-TV6 in Augusta, Ga., the Owosso Argus-Press and the Midland Daily News also have details on the radical constitutional amendment.

Mackinac Center President Joseph G. Lehman told Gongwer News Service that if passed, the amendment would "make government-sector unions more powerful than the Legislature."
