Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – A proposal introduced by 108th District State Representative Ed McBroom would streamline the process for enacting new laws in the state.

House Joint Resolution FF of 2014, which was co-sponsored by 96 of the 110 Republican and Democrat lawmakers, would make all bills effective 90 days after they are signed by the Governor and filed with the Secretary of State.

Currently, the process charges the Legislature to approve “immediate effect” for a bill that has been voted into new law, otherwise it may be up to 15 months before the new law becomes effective.

The Dickinson County Republican says upon approval by both the House and Senate, an amendment to the state constitution would be put on the ballot for the people of Michigan to decide at the next general election.

The measure has been assigned to the House Committee on Government Operations for review.
