Committee to Transform Michigan
The Committee to
Transform Michigan was a ballot initiative committee formed in late
2010 to support 4 proposals:
Eliminate the state Senate, along
with term limits for legislators.
Repeal the Public
Employment Relations Act (PERA), which requires schools and
local governments to bargain collectively with employee unions.
Constitution to ban collective bargaining for state
employees and instead start paying them at the market rate.
Constitution to make Michigan a "right to work" state.
The petitions were
approved by the Board of State Canvassers in December, but we were
never able to raise the $2 million or so needed to fund the petition
drive. The effort was abandoned in April 2011.
The whole project was
thought up and carried out - as far as it went - by Steve Harry, a
retired state employee living in Lansing. He has another website
paid for with
regulated funds by the Committee to Transform Michigan, P.O. Box
80978, Lansing, MI 48908-0978.
