    So far, I see one potential issue. (none / 0) (#1)

    And that one has to do with budgeting/taxation.

    Granted the proposed amendment ends the regular legislative session as late as May 31st and the Budget Year doesn't begin until October 1st, a good four month buffer, I'm still reminded of the shenanigans that had taken place from '07 onwards.

    When the republicans lose control of one house of the legislature and/or the governor, the provisions for emergency (and "non-emergency") sessions would be a great opportunity to repeat the lessons learned in those years and ram through last minute tax hikes with little to no opposition in all of the chaos and confusion.

    Remember: It was Mike Bishop who allowed Granholm's income tax hike to go through (even though he argued that one slipped through given the volume of bills being considered at that time).

    Don't misunderstand, I like the idea and don't want to screw it up by turning this into RMGN v2.0.

    However, I do feel that it is a possibility that needs to be addressed.
