Policy Guides

These policy guides provide a short explanation of important policy issues facing Michiganders. They explain the principles behind good policy reforms, describe shortcomings of existing policies and outline a path towards improving them in a way that will benefit the people that work and live in Michigan.

The Mackinac Center for Public Policy is a nonprofit research and educational institute that advances the principles of free markets and limited government. Through our research and education programs, we challenge government overreach and advocate for a free-market approach to public policy that frees people to realize their potential and dreams.

Please consider contributing to our work to advance a freer and more prosperous state.
