Committee to Transform Michigan

The Committee to Transform Michigan was a ballot initiative committee formed in late 2010 to support 4 proposals:

  1. Eliminate the state Senate, along with term limits for legislators.

  2. Repeal the Public Employment Relations Act (PERA), which requires schools and local governments to bargain collectively with employee unions.

  3. Amend the Constitution to ban collective bargaining for state employees and instead start paying them at the market rate.

  4. Amend the 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 called www.steveharrypublicpolicy.com.










This website paid for with regulated funds by the Committee to Transform Michigan, P.O. Box 80978, Lansing, MI 48908-0978.

Michigan pays its prison employees 13 percent more than the average for Great Lakes states, and requires them to contribute 32 percent less toward their health care coverage. Only New York pays prison guards more than the $58,616 annual salary they earn in Michigan.
