Good news from my home state. After the Michigan Supreme Court overturned their earlier decision, the Michigan Board of Canvassers has voted to put a referendum on the ballot in November to repeal the state’s emergency manager law, which is profoundly undemocratic. That also means the law is suspended until that vote takes place. Public opinion polls show strong opposition to the law, so it looks good that it will be repealed.
