Part-Time Michigan Legislature Gets The Backing Of Lt. Governor

Lt. Governor Brian Calley says he is on board with the latest proposal to move Michigan to a part-time legislature.

Calley announced over the weekend that he supports an effort to make the state legislature part-time. Calley says Michigan is among a minority of states in having a full-time Legislature.

He says over 40 states have part-time Legislatures and the people's business still gets done, constituent needs are still met and laws still get passed.

A recent survey, from the Lambert, Edwards and Associates public relations firm, shows 53 percent of likely Michigan voters support a part-time legislature.
