New Law Restricts When Voters Can Be Informed About Ballot Issues

Governor Rick Snyder signed a bill into law, placing restrictions on when cities, towns or school districts can inform voters on ballot issues.

The law says public money or resources cannot be used to provide information about ballot measures within 60 days before an election.

This includes TV and radio ads, mass mailings and robocalls.

The law is being criticized as keeping voters in the dark about tax millages and other issues.
