The Detroit Free Press and MLive both covered the debate between Mackinac Center President Joseph G. Lehman and a representative of the “Protect Our Jobs” ballot initiative held recently at the Detroit Regional Chamber of Commerce Mackinac Island Policy Conference. MLive also noted it as one of the top 12 moments of the conference. The union-backed proposal would reverse several cost-saving measures achieved by the Legislature over the last 18 months enshrining privileges for the 2 percent at the expense of taxpayers in the Michigan Constitution.

You can read Lehman’s remarks and watch a video of the debate here.
