House Roll Call 450 on
2014 Initiated Legislation 2: Preempt referendum banning wolf hunt

Passed 65 to 43 in the House on August 27, 2014.
    See Who Voted "Yes" and Who Voted "No".
To preempt the effect of a referendum placed on the November ballot by interests opposed to wolf hunting, which otherwise would ban wolf hunts if approved by voters. Specifically, this measure would make “referendum-proof” a 2013 law giving the legislature and Natural Resources Commission exclusive authority to decide which species may be hunted in Michigan. It would do so by making a small change to that law and adding a modest appropriation, which under a 2001 Supreme Court ruling makes the law not subject to referendum (see House Joint Resolution Q for an explanation). This measure (Initiated Legislation 2) was sponsored by groups in favor of a wolf hunt, and triggers a process specified by Article 2, Section 9 of the state constitution, in which the legislature has 40 days to pass initiated legislation, or else it automatically goes on the ballot. In short, with passage of this measure by both the House and Senate, an initiative banning wolf hunts that has already been approved for the November 2014 ballot will not go into effect, even if a majority of voters approve it.
