Longtime tax crusader Richard Headlee has died Tuesday morning in Utah. He was 74.
Headlee ran as a Republican for Michigan governor in 1982. He's best known for the Headlee Amendment, which limits government spending. Voters adopted it to the state constitution in 1978.
A relative called a free-market think tank in Midland to report Headlee's death.
Headlee lost the gubernatorial race to Democrat James Blanchard. He also served as president and CEO of Alexander Hamilton Life Insurance.
