Michigan ranks dead last in the country in government ethics and transparency. We're working to change that and create a government that's truly of, by, and for the people.
To get there, we've proposed a ballot initiative to rein in the outsized influence of corporate lobbyists in Lansing. Our proposal would:
- Ban all gifts from lobbyists to lawmakers
- Require a mandatory 2-year cooling off period before a lawmaker leaving office can take a job as a lobbyist
- Create a “lobby log” that would let Michiganders know who had been lobbying their elected officials, how long, and what for
- Increase transparency requirements for groups that use public communications to influence elected officials
