2016 House Bill 5219

House Roll Call 53: Passed

To repeal the prohibition established by a <a href="http://www.michiganvotes.org/2015-SB-571">2015 law</a> on governments and school district communications referencing their own property tax hike or other ballot measures in a taxpayer-funded communication during the 60 days before the election. The bill instead would permit mailings and other communications with “factual and neutral information concerning the purpose or direct impact” of a proposal, as long as a judge or state elections bureau official has not decreed that their language can be “reasonably be interpreted as an attempt to influence the outcome".
