A new bill would penalize petition circulators if they lie to get people to sign a petition.
Petition circulators, in Michigan, are not legally obligated to tell you the truth about what is in the ballot measure you’re putting your name on.
A bill would change that. And if a petition circulator is dishonest about the measure, the signatures would be invalidated.
Republican Representative Jim Lower is a bill sponsor.
“It makes sense to have this kind of transparency and accountability.”
