Part-time Michigan legislature proposal finds support among lawmakers

State Senator John Proos

ST. JOSEPH (WKZO) -- There are a handful of state Senators who are backing the ballot proposal to make the state Legislature a part-time body.

Senator John Proos of St. Joseph is among them, saying lawmakers do most of their work in the district already.  He notes that since he was first elected to the state House nearly a decade ago, they are only averaging about 110 days a year in session.

Supporters of the ballot proposal are now gathering signatures to put the idea on the ballot this fall.
