Gov. Snyder Kicks Off Statewide Tour Opposing Proposed Amendments

Governor Rick Snyder sets off on a statewide tour Monday to talk about the November ballot. He’ll be urging people to vote “yes” on Proposal One and “no” on the other five ballot questions.

If passed, Proposal One would uphold the governor’s emergency manager law. He says approving the other proposals would threaten the state’s economic future.

Snyder spokesperson Sara Wurfel says the 12-city tour is meant to spread that message before Michiganders hit the polls next week.

“We look forward to talking about what these ballot measures mean for Michigan and how they could stop our comeback," Wurfel says. "And we need to overcome that.”

Supporters of some of the proposals say Snyder is trying to scare voters with inflated claims about their possible economic impact. 

Snyder will make his way through northern Michigan and the U. P. this week before making stops in mid- and southeast Michigan.
