2018 Senate Joint Resolution P

Limit authority of university governing boards

Introduced in the Senate

Feb. 28, 2018

Introduced by Sen. Patrick Colbeck (R-7)

To place before voters in the next general election a constitutional amendment that would limit the powers of the governing boards of the University of Michigan, Michigan State and Wayne State to those prescribed in state law. The constitution now grants these boards “general supervision and control” of the universities, which this measure would make subject to limitations established by the legislature and governor.

Referred to the Committee on Elections and Government Reform
