    While I'm thinking about it . . . (none / 0) (#2)

    . . . and for what my opinion's worth, the ballot language for the initiative ought to read thus:

    The Part-Time Legislative Amendment proposes to change Michigan's Constitution as follows:

    • Limit the duration and schedule of the annual regular legislative session, and require all routine business to be completed (including approving a budget) before adjournment

    • Eliminate bill carryover between sessions of the legislative cycle

    • Require executive approval for convening additional non-emergency legislative sessions, and limit the scope of such sessions

    • Explicitly prohibit a "lame duck" session, except under bona fide emergency circumstances

    • Fix legislators' base salary at $35,000 annually, adjusted for inflation decennially

    • Preserve the governor's authority to convene an emergency legislative session

    . . . which, if my math is right, uses 96 of the 100 words allowed for a ballot summary.
