LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Seven proposals may be on Michigan's November ballot, bringing a deluge of money and ads into hard-fought contests over issues ranging from protecting collective bargaining rights to making it harder to raise state taxes.
The State Board of Canvassers meets Thursday at the Lansing Center to decide which measures to put on the ballot.
It's expected to weigh a challenge to a measure that would repeal the state's emergency manager law. If the board puts the question on the ballot, the law would be suspended until the election.
Also in the mix are measures to allow eight more casinos statewide, require utilities to use more renewable energy and give voters a say over whether a new bridge separate from the Ambassador Bridge should be built between Detroit and Windsor, Ontario.
