LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- The Michigan Department of State says four proposed Michigan constitutional amendments have enough signatures to appear on the November ballot.
The department announced Monday that its Bureau of Elections completed sampling of signatures on petitions for the proposals. The state Board of Canvassers meets Wednesday to decide whether to place them on the Nov. 6 ballot.
The four proposals deal with collective bargaining rights, renewable energy rules for utilities, regulation of in-home care providers, and expanded casino gambling.
Two other proposed ballot issues await signature checks -- one requiring two-thirds majorities in the state House and Senate to raise taxes and another restricting new U.S.-Canadian bridge construction. A proposal limiting the powers of state-appointed emergency financial managers was certified earlier.
State law requires 322,609 valid signatures to make the ballot.
