Federal Judge Places Temporary Freeze on Michigan Law

A federal judge has placed a temporary freeze on a Michigan law what critics are calling a “gag order”.

The law in question stops local officials from distributing information about ballot proposals 60 days before an election.

The judge says the law is unconstitutionally vague and violates free speech rights.

It comes a month after Governor Snyder signed it into law.

The governor did ask legislature to clarify parts of the bill.

The law has outraged some local officials who have filed a lawsuit asking for an injunction.
